I am very excited to see how nicely the body is progressing. I guess I really need to decide on a paint color:)

Yes, it really is coming together nicely! It seems a shame to cover that nice work with paint, but I probably would be painting it as well.

Mongoose930 04-22-2017 06:05 AM

Thanks. I love the red on your car and will probably be heading in the same direction. Red body, no stripes, everything else in satin black. Similar to my old Contemporary.

Cracker 04-22-2017 12:13 PM

If I may suggest a couple Blue Hues...without offending, of course. My current 914 and my old Contemporary. Color + Cobra = Blue (to me). All the best.

Fortunately Craig was able to make the alloy body work with the hood that I fabricated. Not the normal way to do things but I am glad that it all worked out:LOL:

1795 05-20-2017 09:43 PM

The hood fits nice. A true sign of professional workmanship. Now all you need to do is have a few people walk over the top of it and leave foot prints and it will loo real authentic

You did a great job on the hood Kevin:) We are happy to be able to use it, next we need to make your trunk lid panel work;)

It has come a long way from this;)

Just about done and I couldn't be happier. Should be back on wheels next week...

1795 06-28-2017 04:54 AM

Congrats, should not be too long before you are sitting behind the wheel. A nice piece of workmanship.

cobrakiwi 06-28-2017 01:50 PM

This one is just about finished with the body fitment.
Just finishing up a few small details, but looking very nice.

Kevin you will have to start planning a trip down to see the progress.

Jeff, nice suggestions;)
The red I have on one of my other builds looks absolutely stunning, I think Kevin has Red on his mind but until it goes to paint anything could happen:eek:

Agreed, Jeff. White is often overlooked. Great color to let patina, IMO. **)

lovehamr 07-25-2017 03:51 AM

To the matter of color, might I suggest;

That body is too pretty to cover up!
