      Wow. Great color, though it did take a bit to grow on me. the snowflakes look 100% awesome with that color.

      thanks guys...I couldn't be happier.

      spent some time learning how to sand/buff:



      but ended up leaving it up to tom.



      looks even better now. hopefully get the panels done/installed this weekend.

      Looking good Walt. What did you use for the inner fenders? Looks like you used the same black for the dash/front floor pan area.

      That is how they should have made the car originally, you really pulled it off perfectly.
