This last pic depicts the TRUE shade of green it's painted! :)

 Thanks Josh! It'll be nice to look down the side(either one) of the car,and not get "sea sick"! ;) ;D  BTW...here's a pic of the engine compartment...where I spent a good deal of time..de-greasing,and hand-sanding! FUN! ::)

Back when I was younger I hated that shade of green. It seemed plymouth and dodge painted most of the b bodys like that. But now.. I really like It. All the sanding and prep really paid off. You have a beautiful car nice job !!
DAMN, I got old quick!!

  Thanks for the kind words,990! ;) Yeah...over the yrs.(15,to be exact) this shade of green has really "grown" on me! I wasn't in LOVE with the color when I bought it back in '96'...but,it WAS a GTX...and I got it at a good price! When ALL the trim,and badges get put back on,it should look real nice! Some of the trim is on back-order...so,it might be a 2-3 months before it rolls out of my pole barn! :(
