oohh I like it. I can then paint the front steelies the same color. Maybe clear it with a nice fine metallic silver flake.
I hear ya. But the good news is today I got my metallic vinyl seat cover samples. I found a place where they have a ton of colors so I bought 12 sample swatches for a buck each to see what would look best in the car. Pics in a few minutes.Bummer. I've had similar things happen over the years. Leaves a sour taste in my mouth, but have to move on and try to forget it.
The mint green does not go with my dash, so I am thinking of going all white. That will match anything I do with the car.If you haven't nailed down a paint color, then I'd choose something neutral that will go with almost any color, just to be safe. Or wait to do this after it's painted. Best not to get to far ahead, and then paint yourself in a corner.
Don't forget to change your flashers to electronic flashers designed for LED lighting! If you don't, when you get ready to test them they wont blink with a normal flasher.Hey guys, just checking in. Not much to show picture-wise, but I have been doing little things while getting the new house set up. I got the body fully connected to the frame with new rubber body mounts and my drivers door closes perfectly now! So that is a plus! I bought most of the stuff I need to finish the car, so it is just a matter of buckling down and doing it. Next up is to drop the oil pan and get the shaft on the pump I forgot. Then I am going to finish the wiring. I got all LED 1157 bulbs, new sockets tail light lenses, reverse lenses and new 12 volt headlights. One question I do have is what are you all using to mount your alternator? I bought a low mount meant for SBC's, but my alternator is too deep to mount it there and my heads do not have the accessory holes.
I'm using the chrome type that mounts to the #1 cylinder header bolts on both of my cars also Dave. It works great, and both of mine are high driver's side. But the mount could be installed on either #1 or #2 cylinder for right or left sides.Its a shorty Mario. I ended up order one off of ebay. One of the kinds that uses the header bolts. That should work.
