    Cool. As little as my vote may count I say stay with the original brown. Add a 442 front end and rally wheels. I do have a set of poverty caps buried in storage. But they are buried and I don't know how soon I'll be able to get back to them. They are way back in the back with Joe's header panel. Post some some pics. Did you also get all the extra NOS stuff with the car ?

    With the high price of red paint it may stay brown. Yes I got everything except the 1/4 panel He said He could not find it in his storage unit but I got everything else.
    Thanks Doug

    Maroon with silver looks good, Colonnial cream with black would match the interior well. I tend to like the original colors I'd problably stay with brown. Then again I really like Maroon and silver together...good luck with it, should be nice when it's done.

    Doug-
    How bad is the cost of the red paint you are looking at?

    GM has a Dark Mocha Metallic that came out last year on some models. It looks real good.

    I know when I went with the Firethorne Irid Metallic back in '06, it cost me about $300 per gal. for just the paint if I am right??? getting foggy on that as time passes.
    Now the reducers and the clear will cost you another $200.

    It really depends on what brand you are going with. I used a company called " ICI ".
    One of the auto vendors recommended them and that was the only paint that came close to matching the code on my car. THat was after I had Dupont and PPG mixes made up to test spray on some sanded primed panels to see what it would turn out like.
    Now.. Its as close as today's color codes will be.

    You could get that Mocha Metallic from PPG or another provider for less than the red.
    I asked a few of my body shop buddies, and it shouldnt set you back more than $300-$400 per gal.

    Now I am sure others out here would give you some places to call to get better prices on paint, clear and reducers.

    Keystone was the vendor I used for the materials.

    Let me know what you do.

    Brown and Green would be cheaper than the red. But if your idea for the project was RED.. then find a way to do it the way you wanted it!!

    By the way... The 442 nose... Now that is the shit!. Great idea there
