Paint plan? That's a subject that keeps coming up and gets changed quick #-o I don't know....gonna see what kind of match we can come up with and make that call then. :-s id personally still like to try and fluff it in all in and roll 100% mint underneath and inside fenders, ratty but solid up top?
Tonight should be a good session!

Vert only color just like your 55. Iris blue....Your color is even cooler

This needs to go here, one of my all-time favs. I pull this issue of Volksworld out a few times a year at least

I love the look of the dark blue canvas against the lighter metallic blue paint.

Yes, but the car here will be Dolomite Metallic Brown and probably a Dark brown Canvas. It'll be titties!

Those shiney cars are super killer but honestly to get it to that stage it looks like a 12-15k investment doing most ourselfs ](*,) ](*,) what's a full Lenny kit for a vert worth? 5k usd? Plus probably just about that much for a top #-o materials for full blown paint? 2-3k.....the. All the jewelry has to match the mintness of everything else? Chrome, running boards, all the Chrome [-( [-( [-(

The car came with a new black harts top kit. I'm thinking patina/faux'tina paint, roll the split open seats, maybe throw a nice square weave carpet kit at it, the 54 36er with a WW okrassa and a good ol fashion dumping on its nuts :-k

Well shit, maybe not then. I know it went through a huge restoration that fully documented on a forum from Europe. That forum is no longer around, and when I saw that pic on google I assumed it was the same car. My bad!

Could be the same car....I really have no idea. KCW is converting Tom's vert from LHD to RHD afterall so anything is possible.
Meh.
