Hey guys, I'm new here. I use to have a 02 GT that was my pride and joy and sold it when I lost my job in 2005. I got back on track and decided to go with a Foxbody. I just bought a 88 LX Hatchback 5.0, 48k original miles, she has a little front end damage and the frame rails got slightly tweaked, but all more then repairable, couldn't tell by looking at the car.
Well its Regatta Blue on Regatta Blue. So I want to repaint it the original color but throw a spin on it, maybe more metallic? put a pearl in it? that way its fresh and new but original color. The interior is where I want the most ideas, I'm thinking about doing black carpet, black seats, then salvage the blue plastic and parts of the door panels and clean them up as new.
Let me know your thoughts and post some pics of your mods or different paint you went with
Yea, I did think about all black to be honest. But the more I think about it, how many do you see restored back to the original color? Only thing is the panels for the interior quarters and hatchback area are kinda beat up from someone hauling stuff in the hatch and scraping it up some. So I think I would need to repaint them and smooth that out some. I'll take some pics to show everyone. Is there a paint to match it up with the original Regatta Blue?
I saw the backseat delete on one of the restoration websites that I can get in regatta blue. But I need my plastic to look like new. Does anyone have a pic of the regatta blue tweed seats? Have a idea where I could find some?
