I can't help out with the colour match you're after mate but just let me know if you want some ideas photochopped and I'll knock them out for you...

Hey Wayne, poking thru the Garage area for pictures I came across one of yours before sanding. What color was on the bottom of yours?

If I squint a bit at the one from the rear I can kinda see what I have in mind with the color coming over the rear end.

Confuse the witnesses ya know...

"It was a white car"

"No, It was a dark car..."

Mine was actually white from the factory but someone out here sprayed it the silver/metallic grey two tone. It looked like the factory two tone colours but I have no idea of knowing if they were the correct colours...

Here's a quick idea I just knocked up. Do you mean something like this?

WOW!

That's almost exactly what I mean.

I'd have no center stripe because of the glass tops breaking it up and a dark dark gray below the beltlineto mimic the T-Top color.

I'm going to save that pic because it is so close to what I envision.

Thanx immensely!!

After further examination...

I really like the way the stripe is all that follows above the beltline. Much better to my eye than the dark extending above the wheel arches.

I would do a curve instead of a sharp corner where the beltline turns up to the spoiler. And I could well regret such an effort too. But I guess if I was careful with an X-acto knife any curve is reproducable.

Thanx for that terrific pic...



I tried to get the painted nose on yesterday but it's just not going. The sides wont stretch around to pick up their fasteners. It's cold (For Vegas) in here so I will really warm the front up with halogens and general garage heat before I try seriously to assemble this bit.

No probs mate, glad it helped. If I get time tonight, I'll try and knock up a couple more for you. If I don't do it tonight, I'll sit down Friday and do it - tomorrow's out as we have another gig...

No centre stripe, curve upwards at the spoiler and a darker grey?

Wow, Thanx...

That's pretty much what I envisioned but better. I really didn't have a firm idea. I knew I didn't want the dark riding up on the fender well as standard and was considering a straight beltline push. I really like the stripe you've done.

That'll probably be how it'll come out when I pick a color.

Thanx immensely
