Thumbs up LOOKING GOOD

The "Match" looks right on. Nice job, must have been labor intensive. I assume they are just applied with 3M double sided tape? Last question where can I buy a set? Thanks, ED.

Ed, The only pain was fear, I had never mixed or sprayed a pearl color. Once I started I never turned back. Yes you are correct they are applied with 3M double sided tape. I used the same tape as bumper guides to mark the body lines in order to align the panels during install. and thirdly, I got mine from American muscle for under 80 dollars.

New leather inside, knee pads and A pillars. Easier than I expected, once I figured out how the pillar covers popped off.

New badge on the grill. The cheap tribar pony I got from Amazon didn't do well over the winter, so now I have a cheap US Air Force emblem from Amazon. We'll see if it lasts any better.


The colors and pattern go great with my paint and stripes. I'll probably replace the tribar on the trunk with the same badge.

I received my fender scoops from American Muscle yesterday. Got them at the sale price. My car is Oxford White so I think I'll paint the inserts silver on the outline areas only. This way it will give the inserts definition and should make them pop. I'll post pictures when completed.

Caliper color

I wanted to add a little color to what I think is a boring color on or PP1 GT's. It made them pop a lot more then I thought it would. They are painted copper. However behind the black wheels and R.C. body they look almost orange.

Yeah, kinda warm, but I served my time in the Persian Gulf, so it's not that bad here, right? That's what I tell myself when sweat is dripping into unmentionable places, anyway.


Moving on quickly from that thought, here are some pics.

Time for a bath

I was having my car washed today and no less then 3 people stopped and asked me about the car. So I took a few photos.

I passed the 500 mile mark after installing a new clutch on her, so the obvious choice was to do a take off and power shift.

/She dun real good too!

Installed a dash cam, and figured out how to route the power cable so it's mostly hidden.

I thought you might get a blue power cable and visibly run it all around the cabin.
