ImageImageImageImage the colour was not close enough, so it got more panels painted. you can easily see it in the picture of the quarter panel next to the door.

It's way cool that you are able to save that dime.
And after reading all of your builds I'm sure the end results will be nothing less than perfect.
And of course I'm partial to that orange paint!

Being neck deep in my own restoration project I've come to fully appreciate the time and effort it takes to do this kind of quality work

Two thumbs up!!!

Bike papa i was looking at your build and it is very cool. the paint looks nice and bright too. Image we painted the doors and fenders to even out the colour issue. ImageImageImage

Nice job Tyson, I knew you be the one to be able to fix it RIGHT!

Now we can get him out on one of our drives.

kept another 510 alive! its funny, when you do that to a house, you get a tax incentive. do it to a car(a 510 at that), you'll only get the praise of the car community. Thanks!

seeing the quarter cut away gave me the "NO NO" feeling. seeing it taped off and painted gave me the "don't stop a rocking" feeling. great work as always tyson.
