Thanks! Ive really spent a lot of time thinking about which way to go before deciding to powdercoat it all. Bumpers will be black as well.

Have you considered a two tone bumper treatment. I did a grey/Black on a previous car and it seemed to be a popular choice. Again... the car is so Awesome !!!

Yes Mark! You and me both!


I got new bumpers from AMD and had them powder coated in satin black along with every other piece of stainless trim on the car[Linked Image]

I didn't like the contrast of the orange foglight and black bumper so I had the orange lenses tinted and love the way they turned out

The side glass and windshield is in. The rear window is close to being installed. The engine was started up and tuned. It sounds great. After the rear window is installed, it's down to headliner, carpet, and the rear seat. It looks like I should actually be driving it this summer.

Thanks although I can't take much credit. I've had some greats friends and professionals who have done the heavy lifting. I've just had a few ideas, did the demolition/cleanup work, and scrounged parts. I hope to be driving it this summer and enjoying it. It's the first one I've actually finished. LOL
