Paint shop
« on: March 01, 2010, 06:03:06 PM »
Finally took my car to the pain shop yesterday. Its leaving for media blasting tomorrow and then it comes back for body work and paint. I have a bunch of pictures but i seem to have lost my camera cable so i will upload them as soon as i find a way too ;D I chose light pewter metallic as the color with all of the normal black decals/ally stripes etc. I should be getting her back early-mid April, i can't wait.

A USB cable  costs about 2 dollars?   ;D  Sure would like to see some pics bud.  Here's my Mach after I picked it up today from the body shop.   We have some light rain coming down, so that's what the water is from.  My old lady crunched both the rear quarter panels, and now "Big Red" is back to factory specs.   This guy did a super job with a very difficult repair, don't ya' think?

If you can't find a cable just get a card reader they are handy and you don't need to use your camera battery to upload your pic's to your computer.

That back/front window and drip rail window trim looks kinda rough.  Why didn't you take the window and the trim off before prepping?

After a second look you are right.  Sorry 'bout that.  Looks like you have it coming along just right.  Keep us posted with upgrade pics.

Looks pretty familiar, as with my car's recent painting.
What color is it going to be?

How is the car by the way? Get the interior all finished up? It will be a Light Pewter Metallic with all of the decals and emblems of course.

Are you going with black decals and hood then?  I saw a blue car with silver hood and decals - looked pretty neat. 
I posted a message about a week ago with pics of my interior.

Lookin' good big fella.  One of the things I enjoy about these projects is a clean engine bay.  Yours looks outstanding.  That engine has come a long way from the nasty looking thing with the before picture, hasn't it?  WOW!
