Apparently, your wish was granted. Good looking color scheme!

Must be the lighting, the first picture I thought it was black. It sure looks good. Are you just about done other than the assembling?

Done??? These things are never really done!!

But yes. I have to assemble the front clip, install brake lines, wiring and gauges...and rear fenders and running boards, set up wheel alignment... At that point it'll be moving around under it's own power.

Then...interior, rear bumper fabrication, heater, parking brake, side windows (etc. etc)...but if it's driveable, all of those things will be minor bumps in the road.

The color is green...it looks black under fluorescent lights without any sunlight, but it is a dark green color (TCI rock moss green).

The best part is, for every part that I put on, I get a little more shop space back!! Pretty soon I'll have room for another project. My son is thinking about trying to find a 55 that is drivable & will eventually go through it. I guess I could sign up for that!!

Well it's certainly looking good, night and day compared to your avitar. I actually got to spray some paint of my own today.

You're moving right along.

If you're looking for another project, why wait for your son? I can always trailer the 51 Panel down to you.

I love it when either of my boys help. The older one has moved away but he was home last weekend and helped me hammer some sheet metal. Your project is looking mighty fine.
