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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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