thats the color baby. looks like the color from those pics i showed you a while ago. im loving it, cant wait to see it completed. how much does a repaint like that go for? are they painting the engine bay compartment as well? i hear thats like an extra grand or so to do in itself. looks hot.

my engine compartment is just blacked out, but it is done in a slightly texturized black (kinda like a smooth rhinolining - looks good)

the paint is called Tangelo Orange - from house of colors

if you can see (last pic), it has an awesome gold pearl in it, but these pictures do not do justice as to when it is in the natural sunlight..... it's just plain jawdropping !! (it changes from an orange to a golden/yellow orange, and in darker loghting.... it takes on a deep orange color)

the headlights fit in perfectly and smooth (not hard at all) so it really isn't a biatch

Looks really good, cannot wait to see the end result......btw, you should think about sound dampening the doors right now while they are off and any other exposed surface to reduce your road noise and improve your SQ.

all the bodywork and paint is being performed at JAB autoworks (johnson autobody - custom import div) i still don't have a clue as to how much all this work is going to run me......... last time i was up at the shop, i asked and told eric (co-owner/painter) that i had about $6500-$7000 for him and if that would cover everything..... his reply was "oh yeah.... don't worry"

so, i guess this is running me around $6500- $7000
