Ill post pics within 2 weeks two 2 years :lol:

were almost done, all thats left is glassing the ground effects and then paint. im doing Prowler Orange, which is a high pearl paint that took me about a year to find. there will be one front emblem and one rear emblem, with the front over a small flame.

Im debating on doing Stingray emblems on the sides... what do you guys think? i know technically it isnt a stingray because that option stopped in '76, but since the option was only the addition of the emblems... :confused:

Not mine, but a Victoria car. Also, the back end is painted the same dark metallic brown, entirely up to the sharp edges. Color is a custom version of warbonnet yellow, with some lime color added and lots of metal flake!

its actually not that expensive anymore. well it still is, but not as bad as it used to be. the color i wanted to paint mine was about $600 a pint and it was only a orange that changed to yellow. the red to blue kamelion (sp) was only about $450 a pint. as i understand, you have to take a class to learn how to pain kamelion and color change paints. i know its at least a 3 stage paint job, which makes it expensive. cool stuff though. Steve Saleen offers a multi-color paint job on his mustangs that has about 5 colors it changes between. only thing is that it costs $10,000 :crazy:
