Final stage of wheels. They are far from perfect but again learned a lot. First time dealing with paint reactions and cracking. I like the look and may get them professionally done next year but for now they will do.

The car is likely going to be a deep red or black, haven’t settled on a color yet. I just wanted a wheel color that popped a bit.

Red or black it will look nice. Gold looks good with just about any color, it also looks good with white, silver, blue, etc.

I agree, have to settle on a color one day. Car is at the shop for engine work so decided to try my hand at painting. Once it’s back and I drive it for a bit will get into paint and body work.

Should I match my center console to the deep red I plan to paint the car or to the gold I painted the wheels? Currently it is silver because I matched it to the door handles. Debating changing out all the silver pieces.

I wouldn`t paint the console the same gold as the wheels, I would go with the red that you plan on painting the car with. As far as painting all the Silver pieces, that`s a matter of preference.

Not much going on with the car it's awaiting a clutch to get this in and final assembly. I can not wait to get the car back drive it some and then move on to paint among other things. This part of the build was way above of my skill level and realistic expectations of doing it myself. Hopefully the car will be fully done including paint by summer so I can enjoy it.

In the spirit of "I did not see that one coming"... You went from painting the rims to a motor swap!?!?

What motor is that? Do you have a separate build thread that I missed?

I can't take credit for the motor swap, way beyond my skill set and tool availability. I sent the car to a shop to get that done, the motor is a VR6. I originally planned to try myself until more research showed the adapter plate I had in mind wasn't going to work so it would have to be a custom piece. I have decided to attempt the paint job myself once I get it back and enjoy driving for a couple days.

Not going to be for everyone but a mockup of the cars direction.

Dropped the car off for coil over installation and alignment. Next up is a new exhaust, this thing is way too loud.

Exhaust done, alignment done and my passenger side headlight retrofit is done. Just have the drivers side to do tomorrow and then on to a try at custom taillights. Pics of headlights tomorrow but nothing you guys haven’t seen, retrofit lab is a great option.

So drivers side headlight didn’t go as planned. Going to have to rewire the whole thing. Unexpected setback for sure. If anyone has tips on getting it done I am all ears.

Quick little image on the direction the project is currently headed. First time doing any sort of bodywork. I understand why shops charge so much now.
