    Inspiring work! It looks soooo good. Makes a novice like me think he can actually do it. :D

    I plan on doing my first paint job (hopefully) in the not too distant future. Going to start on my daily beater Dakota as I it isn't a big deal if I have mess ups. It will be my learning experience. Then it will be on to my '68 Barracuda and, if I'm happy with the Barracuda, then my '65 Sport Fury.

          I know the colors won’t make sense to most, but the grey and blue will be incorporated on the outside. So just tying the interior into the exterior.

                From a distance it just looks black. In the sun, it pops pretty good. Well at least to this color blind guy. I’m happy with it so far.

                    You are correct, pics just don’t portray what I see looking at it. I’ll be sure to take some pics when we pull it out in the sunshine to show the difference in colors.
