Really nice color combination! Very original scheme.
Very refreshing that someone is building a car with their tastes and not following the crowd lockstep. And not fretting over the value of a totally stock "collectible".

I think there are enough totally stock / original guards red '87 Carerra's in the world. I wanted a car that would put a smile on my face after work as I jump in and drive the back road home.

Obviously this isn't a good investment (I will be way,way upside down on the build) and left stock, the '87 would appreciate. But this isn't an investment for me- it's a sports car to drive and have fun. Hey, some guys buy a brand new Turbo (that's not appreciating either). To each his own.

I really, really like the green, and the orange/cream makes for a good accent. I don't understand when people pull a car to the frame, cut it up, then paint it the same color as a billion other cars on the road. I'm interested in seeing where this one goes.

Hey Outlaw, cool car. Looking forward to seeing it done! Looks like Nick Moss does nice work looking at his portfolio... I've been inspired by his cars for a couple years now.

The slope is not slippery; in fact it is entirely frictionless.

Love the color on this thing....can't wait to see the finished product! And good for you for building what you want to....after all, walking outside and seeing this sitting there waiting for you will chase away those upside down blues anyway!

Very nice. Are you using 15 inch wheels? TB tires?

Excellent choice of wheels for the "ST" stance. Are they ST flares 9 inch?

I see the arches are more correct to the ST with the curved edge.

Fantastic colors. Subscribed! Best of luck with the build. It's going to be incredible I suspect.
