Yay. (that work?)


I just had an aggravating, frustrating meeting. Went right out to the garage, where it's 30 degrees. My son and I are pulling the rear subframe off his old BMW E30 project car. I need some banging, hammers, visceral work to do. Came in to look at a DIY video.

Removing all the bits soon and will install Euro bumpers and Euro lens kit, Still wondering if I should go with original Silver or kick it up a notch, has anyone done a clear coat with a silver enhancer?

That's where we are headed, I believe that is a Honda Silver done by an ABB member. I have been leaning towards that...see posts # 18 and 20

Cheers!

Your post made me want to return my repainted-red spider back to silver...~that~ silver.
Thanks for that.

Awesome work to date, keep it up! I recently bought a silver '73 that I'd like to go Euro spec. Already has carbs and interior to be re done with Euro console. I'll be watching this post enthusiastically!
