Looks like it may look pretty kickass, but hard to tell on a thumbnail. Wink

Looks great. Good color. What type paint did you use (base coat/clear) ? Did you strip the roof to bare metal?

nice color choice....... but come on hook it up with some better shots, we dont care bout dirt and fish eyes..lol......

it would look awesome with "cadillac white diamond paint" rally stripes.
nice pearl white on top of that deep blue/green will make it look fast and expensive

my 11 year anniversary was yesterday no work sat or sun, untaped today, going to put some of it back together tonite, ill try to get some good pics, no fish eye, lots of dust to wetsand and buff out of the clear, 2 runs in the primer, one kinda noticible one almost nonexastant, for my first paintjob on a car it came out great,(im used to painting carnival rides with rustoleum) i utsed dupont base/clear and their sealer/primer, i did most of the sanding, had a shop handle the big stripping and bodywork, they primed it the first time also. i then wetsandedthe whole car with 400 and a block, and did final little spots that needed filling and sprayed the car myself. i have about 100+ hrs into it myself since christmas. not bad for having a 2 week deadline, thanks to my boss, who let me paint it inside at work.

I like that color a lot! Smile I want to do a two tone with my two door, using a dark blue like that and something lighter blue sort of like a marina blue type of color.

Looks GREAT so far.
How come you didnt tape off the engine compartment.
You'll either spend tons of time getting that right....
OR
maybe your the type that doesnt care?
You'll never be able to pop the hood without comments like this.
Bottom line is its a nice job & unique color Arrow

the engine compartment hasnt had proper attention yet. the previous owner did some crazy things under the hood and its a project yet to be tackled,and until the LS swap, theres no reason to pop the hood... who wants to advertise a wheezin 2bbl 305 smogger
