I still do not have the money to paint my Elky, but long range plans are nothing new to me. What do you think about the color in the following photo? JB [img]Paint Color? Spectr10[/img]

Green is my favorite color. I really like the shade on the hood, it is not as yellow tinted as the new Chevy Synergy Green. I prefer a more pure Green shade like the 1969 Rally Green. When you add a little pearl to Rally Green, it really "pops". That spectra Chrome does look like an expensive paint process! it sure is nice lookin" Leg Hump though!

That Nova is just one of the many colors I have been considering. Nice car! I doubt I will ever get the car/truck painted, but you never know. I sold my 78 Elky for $300 just to get rid of it. I would never have gotten around to restoring it and now the new owner vows to do it up right. JB

That is beautiful stuff if you have the cash, painting skill, and perfect bodywork. Assuming all that went perfectly, I'd then be afraid to drive it for fear of scratching it. Smile
