    Some body work photos. Decided to use the header panel from my parts car, too many broken mounts on original. Yellowish product is a sprayable polyester filler. Both fenders and header are ready for primer surfacer.

    Found some ambition and made some progress the last couple of weeks. Stripped it back down to the shell and finished welding and grinding on the modifications. Needed a way to move it around so made some dollies that mount to the bumper supports. Did a little body work on the strut towers and cowl, and today rolled it out and blasted the engine compartment. Would of liked to blast some other areas but between running out of daylight and fogging up the helmet lens it was getting hard to see. Then back into the shop to warm up and spray a coat of etch primer so it doesnít flash rust.

    Thanks guys.

    Today while jambing parts I sprayed a couple of blanks, one code E4 (vermillion)and one PQ (race red). I like them both better than the viper red, but Iím pretty sure itís going to be race red, the brighter of the two.

    With fluorescent lighting.


    With color matching light. What it should look like in full sun light.

    So, seeing as you're from Iowa, I would choose Vermillion Red, but that's just me.
    It's Gumby's fault.

    It's a Slipknot reference. They're from Iowa and have a song called Vermillion.

    Sadly, it's the only thing I know about Iowa.
    It's Gumby's fault.
