The proper light is before the sun hits it.

It will be softer and no burned out high lites.

We pick it up around 9 in the morning.  The sun will still be behind the building, so the light should be good. cheers

Hi Guys

The paint looks so good it should run 310, what color did you use?

Been a candy red fan for 50 yrs, topped off with some turned gold leaf it is hard to beat !!!

Outside the paint booth looks like a welding supply co.

Don, it is a welding/paint supply company.  The color is Suzuki Riviera red metallic.  My friend modified the color a bunch to try to match what we had.  The Suzuki color was the closest we could find to start with.

So today when we got the car back in the shop we pulled all if the blower tubes before the intercooler to inspect and clean.  We then pulled the old rear wheel studs and replaced them with the ones that go with the new wheels.  Next we ran the new parachute lines and they come out just below the rear tail lights, we did a little modification below the lights.  Installed the push bar and the emergency shut off switch not all in that order.  Whew... More tomorrow. cheers

We only got a few things done today.  Painted both tail lights to match, put the drive shaft on, mounted the parachute attachment for the handles(not sure exactly what their called), also mounted the parachute packs.  We made the parachute cables, that took some time.  We got stainless cables but the stiff ones, they don't flex much so it was a pain.  That's it for the day.
