Great color of green. My first car was a 54 champion coupe that I spray bombed CalCustom metalflake avacado green!!! I was 11, and the paint was 50 cents a can discontinued at Gibsons!
I wanted it to turn out like the one in your pix......(it didn't) ;(
It looks like your having way too much fun! Continue with the good work.

2nd picture really shows the color nice. Engine is sweet too.
I've always been a big fan of green on cars. Had 2 buicks in near that color.

Could see some details on your brake pedal? Doing a firewall MC was an engineering challenge on my 52 with such a shallow dash area to work with. I like to see how others did it.

What I like is the area to work around the car. Space envy.

It looks like the Interior decision is just about made for you, with the Rust Color Window Frames, it can be a shade of Brown, or the same as the outside Green, mixing in a totally different Color into the Brown/Green mix probably won't work.

StudeRich,
I am considering matching the uppermost portion of the board as close as possible to the brown door trim and going with a similar brown fabric headliner. Inserts on boards (now Med. Brown) would go to a cream which would relate to instrument cluster inserts, steering column and wheel. A darker brown on lowest portion of the door. Need to see if 54 regal (brown) yardage will work with new colors. Lots to consider
