It's my original door shell that I sand blasted and un skinned. I got a hold of Dan at the Z shop and he had a skin for me to re install.

slow progress because I'm a little new to quarter replacement game. I stripped it down to get any 46 year old rust out and fix a few dents from moving around all these years.

The 1/4 panel shot with the lighting presented is a bit artistic.

Progress looks great - think you could drag it out on a trailer to the AJC at Waterfront Park on Aug. 27th? You could be up for best project!

Sorry ,It's been a bit busy with work and traveling for classes and trying to get the car ready for paint , but i made it .I borrowed a booth from a friend and his boss , and they were nice enough to help me out . First car I've painted start to finish ...A bit of trash in the clear , so im gonna get to learn how to sand/cut/rub. Came out pretty good ,and it's not grey primer anymore. My buddy wet sanded and polished the hood to prove what it would turn out like . I've shot color with my friend right there, but never with water borne, and never by myself . I just had him come in and give me the thumbs up or down while doing it.

So RAD! Looks like British Racing Green. What was the original colour?...

I think the original color was 930 Dark Green when it left the factory . Tyson sprayed it this color when he was doing my under the hood repair , so I had my friend match it and I shot her in this . It kind of a odd color . Super bright in the light and really dark in the shade. Range Rover , Conniston Green code 570. 1998-2002
