Good advice from Toby on the body & pan separation... kinda sucks to spend
$3k on a snazzy poly paint job then find small patches of the old color
peeking out here and there (if it sounds like i'm speaking from
experience... well, it's 'cause I am).

I prefer the "modern" colors, as well, on a non-stock resto, damn spiffy to
see a "new" car with classic body styling (actually had one person who
thought my '72 Sqr was a '97!). You could do what I did when it came time
to choose a color: I drove around town to *all* the new car dealers and
checked out what the colors looked like on a large 3-D object rather than
just a paint chip. Came up with "Ultra Violet Poly" (a deep, bright violet)
from a '95 Mustang. All I can say is... a-m-a-z-i-n-g!

Didn't want to add to the "babe-magnet" thread, so I'll just keep it short
and say that women love a bright purple car (and dreads too... heh).

PS - Thanx to everyone for the after-market shifter info... my lovely S.O.
gave me a Scat shifter for x-mas, can't wait to get it installed.

PPS - Toby E.: As soon as I get some new accessories installed i'll
definately scan some photos of the purple beastie for virtual perusal. I'll
use your photo tips too, thanx!
