If you paint it a light green the pickle relish stains will just blend in.

That really is nice work Chris :)

I was thinking yellow and red.

This way the ketchup and mustard for the hotdogs wouldn't show up to bad if we spilled some on the rear deck.

Chris we do love you, even if you do drive a NOVA!!!!!

But at least it isn't as bad as owning a Chevelle.......

So it's going to be silver and black? That's a good combo.

Have you thought about a gloss silver with satin black on the hood and trunk?

Either way, it's going to look good.

I love you guy's too, and Bruce!!!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Satin nickel NOT silver.... It's in the silver family but not silver. ;) ;) ;) All color will be high gloss. I used the old trunk lid for a test panel.

Next you need to add a black vinyl top to set things off.... :smt002

That will be one good looking chick mobile.

The car isn't getting strips or a "V" top. The deck lid was used as a paint test panel and has 4 different colors on it. We taped off a stripe for the fun of it.
Here is a pic of the paint scheme only not red but SATIN NICKEL and tuxedo black......... :thumb:

So basically you're following your current paint scheme, primer grey and fiberglass gel black......lmao2: lmao2:

Now you gotta admit, that was funny, even for you Texan's.... :thumb:

So quit telling us about it and get it done!

Wing is completely finished. I put nut plates on the hinge so I could remove the wing easily. Also used the Tim McAims strut kit to support the wing.
Complete wing is only 6.2 lbs. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Got to love that...... :thumb:

LOL! The bumper is hanging on the back of the car, not even attached. I have a fiberglass bumper on it's way now.

That's really nice work, Chris. I'm impressed at that wing being as light as it it, good job :)

How does having the wing help ? Does it help with better over all aerodynamics ?
