I think he mentioned leaning toward viper green, or gulf blue.


Is this all in real time? Or are these pics from work that HAS been done and you're gradually bringing us up to current? If this is going on real time I hate you in the nicest way possible!!

Haven't decided on colors, I would like to do something unique.

I've no fear you'd choose anything but! Given the build quality, the color is just going to ice it. I realize that we both have blue and green weaknesses, but of late I've been oddly attracted to some of the 'drab' or pedestrian tones like

Sahara beige
Toronado gold
Linen gray
Steel blue (yes, in 'blue' family but gray to some)
Buttermint green

Evoking vintage 356 (non metallics) or even something that'd fit an FJ40 LandCruiser. Either way, this is the fun part, a few months down the road!

Keep up the awesome work!

I got my door handles back from Jim Simpson, I think they look awesome! Working on the rear bumper flares, decided not to use a one piece fiberglass instead rework the stock bumper ends. Car #2 came back from the blaster and we are slicing and dicing already.

So while we are doing metal work, I'm restoring the parts that will be going back in the cars.

First mock up of front suspension and wheel. The wheel requires a spacer to no hit the 930 calipers. This wheel is a -3 offset.
