    Beautiful color Bill. That one might be a tri-coat. Would have to look up the code. I can tell you for sure, it will not be cheap.

    Actually BMB said not too bad in terms of price, middle of the road. I was also looking at Toyota Ooh la la Rouge mica and that was $85 more a pint! Who would have guessed the Porsche color would be cheaper...!

    Plus my car will be faster and handle better with the Porsche paint color. It's worth it for a performance boost.

    upload_2021-6-11_1-48-1.jpeg Nothing to post on my Camaro while it is in paint with @bodymanbill

    I can’t believe it has been over a year. Time flies!

    But, I have my self busy trying to get my ‘55 Ford F-250 on the road. Finally started working on it after over 2 years. 223 IL6 Engine came out today as it is totally seized. I have a replacement motor out of a ‘62 panel truck waiting to get cleaned up and installed. Just thought I would post something since the pandemic set everything back.

    Would a 312 fit in there?

    No Idea. I have a replacement 223 as I didn’t want to have to mess with trying to make something fit and I knew this would and everything I have like transmission, Exhaust, etc. would bolt right up.

    This build is a get it running and driving safely (brakes, tires). The only other significant things are replacing the bed wood, re-upholstering the front seat and making sure all the lights work and the wiring is safe. I plan to detail the engine compartment to a point so everything is clean and neat there. The dash and doors are in very good shape and just need a good polishing. Gauges are decent.

    No body work or other major enhancements. I want to drive it and use it and not worry about damaging anything. I can fix things up as I go.
