Why yes I do know what it's final tint will be Harry. After yrs. of painting, repainting and repainting this thing again and again in my head 30-40 times in as many colors as you can possibly imagine I have finally come to end of the rainbow.......

What do you guy's think of the final choice?

I second the vinyl top! I like the color combo.
I am not really sure what the question is, but I am pretty sure the answer is Big Block.

Ok, paint is picked out! :thumb: After doing 3 test panels in 4 different colors or shades of silver, I have chosen 1 that I think will look fabulous on my car. Funny thing though it's not silver, it is in the silver family but not silver!

And the winner is: Satin Nickel :bling: :bling: :bling: :bling: :bling: :bling:

Hugger Orange, need I say more...... :smt005

I like the silver, black stripes and black top idea, but whatever color you pick is fine with me, as long as it's not multi color like your first paint job.

Dang I'm going to missing seeing multi colors, this is going to be a shocker to the racing world.

Keep up the good work buddy.
Those who think they know it all have no way of finding out they don't......... :scratch:
