Well, it is time for the most difficult decision I have had to make on my build so far. (perhaps my life!) I am getting an unexpectedly tax refund, and this means paint just might get pushed up a bit, if I can actually talk my wife into it. So, here is where I am at: The car originally had a vinyl top. I can go either way. A bit about the build: It has a full R&P and crossmember, so it should handle and corner pretty well. It also has a 351C 4V with an aggressive cam and a super grumpy rattle. Also, it is a gold nugget special. This means it is a special edition, As-is, and even though i have molested it with the Mustang II front end and bigger engine then the original, I don't think anyone would fault that. So there is also that. Anyways, I need some input for paint. Before I learned it was a GN special I was planning on a Charcoal/Black scheme. After seeing Gikorts Stang I thought I would shamelessly rip off his scheme: This could look good with or without the vinyl top. Another option is to go completely stock. Here is MY car before I started the restoration: To me it kinda looks grandma-ish, but with the new springs to raise the back end back up and the new Crager SS wheels that should curb that a bit. If I did this scheme, I would probably take the stripes down the back of the car as well. Another option would be to still go with the gold and vinyl top, but go with a gold/black two tone. This option is really tempting me. It screams muscle car, and is a bit different. This is a poor Photoshop concept of someone's GN special. It would make painting easier, as all the nooks and crannies are already gold. Then again...ugh. Just can't decide. Perhaps defining the car might be a good idea. As stated earlier, this is a muscle car, which is loud and in charge. It is NOT a modernized resto-mod, although I have added power brakes and steering. It is not really made to be a "responsible" commuter car, but rather a weekend warrior. Don't know if that helps or not. Anyways, thanks fellas!
