Last time I did this, i used the Dark Canyon Red as an accent color against the aluminum Duplicolor engine paint. This red is a Jag color (signal red) and man is it red. I've tried to keep things mostly original on this car with changes that can easily be undone but I'm growing tired of that. So, I think I'm stepping over a threshold and I'm fine with it.

Looks great to me



If you hit your pony over the nose at the outset of your acquaintance, he may not love you, but he will take a deep interest in your movements ever afterwards.

Looks good Joe! It is your car, your engine, do as you please and forget the "purists".

Now just send me your carb linkages so I can nickel plate them!!!

I like the bright color, makes easier to spot the source of leaks (good and bad).

That motor looks great!

Paul, how did you nickel plate them? And did you leave them unpolished? They look like zinc. Beautiful!

You guys are a bunch of comedians, eh?

Wouter - The clear coat on the pulley wasn't dry yetcool smiley

Peter - If I ever have to lift that extinguisher in a hurry, I could be in trouble. It's a heavy mother.

Those are sweet, Paul. I'll take a raincheck though. Maybe when I rebuild the carbs again.

Robert - That filter does mess up the feng shui, huh? Maybe I can talk Dick Moritz into having his buddies at Purolator color match for me.
