    The only clear coat is in the middle; there isn't any on the edges at all, since there's a lot of little dings that need to get addressed before we really go fot it. I must admit, the Studebaker pickup at Barrett Jackson was the inspiration, though I think this is probably several shades lighter than that (Forest Green??--maybe).
    The response from those who've seen it in the flesh has been unanimous, though, so maybe I won't have to hunt down the darker color.

    But I'll also pose a new question--What color combo for the frame (Art Morrison, not Stude), suspension, and rear end?

    My thought is a dark grey frame, with a contrasting color for the suspension pieces. But body color? satin black? nickel or chrome?

    What do you all think?

    That's what I read. I'm surprised it only took three minutes to load on my machine.

    The color is great! Stick with it. I especially liked the brick effect (grin).

    I'm not sure how is would have gotten to be almost double the size by posting it here.
    It never hurts to press that "preview" button before posting.

    Also, you might modify the size now (hit the "edit" button on you posting), since I'm sure the dial up guys will give up trying to load this thread.

    I posted this from my website, where the picture measures 1088 pixels wide. I'm not sure how is would have gotten to be almost double the size by posting it here.

    According to the info when I right click on the picture it is 1944 pixels wide. The best size for the forum is between 640 to 700 pixels.
