    Well, the color is off but it is flat red and at least now itís solid and that was the goal. Should have it back on this week.

    Great work! The red being off a little is way better than free ac and weight reduction where you don't want it.

    That's it exactly! Lol! That thing broke me of ever wanting to paint a car again. Building 6 good doors from 10 junk doors was pretty intense. Gave me a new appreciation for patina.

    Looks great, going to be a really unique toy! At least you won't go to an event, then wonder which red camaro in the parking lot is yours! Friend of mine has a sign in his shop, "Unique is what we seek, but bizarre is what we are"! You seem to be fully qualified for a sign like it!!!!!

    Just about road test ready. I put all new brakes, brake lines, and shocks on the back. I got my hydraulic clutch conversion finished up and it works good. I had to get the pinion side of the driveshaft changed to a small Chrysler unjoint and should have that back Monday. Then just a few odds and ends and we can call it done.
