    I should take a moment here to point out that the title of this thread is NOT, I repeat NOT an excuse for Shawn to expose himself. OK, back to the car stuff.

    I like that red. That's giving me the itch to use those metalcast paints at some point. Don't know on what, though.. but I'm sure I'll find something.

    BTW, this thread isn't just limited to minor engine details. If there's anything you feel like showing off.. maybe an interior part you thought came out well, but didn't do enough interior work to merit a thread of its own, (for example) let's have it. I meant this as a repository for all types of little cosmetic jobs.

    Yea that red really kicks ass,figuring that the purple,blue and green should come out candy just like mine did, would love to see somebody else try it.
    Start out with the metalcast primer first though,then paint and clear.
    Must have but at least 5 coats of prime,10 coats of paint and 4 coats of clear,but as you can see the finised product is well worth the time.

    Removed factory ashtray from console and installed a footwell lamp. I wired it in with the reading lamp switch on the back of the console.

    Now that's what I'm talking about. Good use of the space, and something I would definitely consider doing on one of these. Maybe the '88 with its lighting package or whatever.

    Just thought I'd take a quick pic to show my progress on this. I'm down to the 2000 grit wet part. This will be cleaned up a bit when I hit it with the polishing compound and clearcoat tomorrow, and then it will be done.. but this is a decent idea of how it will turn out:
