Here is a nice shot of the area around the trunk.  Kind of shows how blue this color is in the light.
Pretty soon it will be time to start assembling the car.  Anyone know where I can get a nice set of door handles?  Mine are not the best.

I do remember that they were listed for '76 to '88.  My doors were from a '76 Malibu classic & they worked fine.  Idk what is different with '73/'75.

I did replace my doors. How do I know what year the doors are from?

The drivers still had the decal, Vin and all.  The pass side I think was marked in junkyard crayon... Its been years but I remember both were from different '76 Malibu classics.

Just thought I would throw a couple pictures of how the paint is coming.  I just have the inside of the truk lid left to paint.  Here is a shot of the skyroof panel.  Not that it matters becuase it will have a vinyl top covering it.Just thought I would share.... - Page 3 IMG_0589

just a thought, but my painter did not clear the landau part so the glue could stick better.

I did think of this. When it came to painting the area under the vinyl top, I worried more about coverage then making it look pretty. Just paint no clear.

That looks great. Any idea what brand paint your painter used? And what brand clear? Thanks
