    Very nice Brad. The cars look better in person. And, now, where's your next destination?

    McCuan did a nice job on the wood and the gauges. And you did a pretty nice job on everything else. <grin>



    And those wheel covers are exceptionally nice looking. Not that I'm biased or anything..

      I'm going to stay here in the south, till it gets a little warmer up north, and then head to St.Louis, to work on several different Studes, including Lews' 63 Daytona convertible

        Bez does great work, and anyone seeing it person knows it looks even better in real life. For those who don't know, Brad does a travelling road show bringing his mechanical and cosmetic restoration services to your location instead of having you send your baby off somewhere. Really gives the owner a chance to monitor and watch the magic take place.

        Where to next, Brad?

          Brown? I once pained my '67 brown...regretted it the day I picked it up from the paint shop.

            Not just a brown, but a pearlized bronze that changes color depending on the angle of light hitting it. It looks bronze gold straight on... a little redder off angle and almost black, like a smoked chocolate look sighting straight down the sides.
            You can see the red effect and the dark effect in the pics, but I haven't captured the goldish color in photos as of yet.

              Do a night shot with a flash camera, it'll bring out the metalic, I have a shot of my Brown Lark if you want to see it.

                  The paint sounds like its one of the 'color-shift' finishes.

                    Very nice looking Avanti. Is this a 1964?

                      The steering wheel was cracked in several places, so, after I repaired it, I had it wood grained in walnut.
                      They couldn't exactly match original. (Note also, that it is a tilt wheel)!

                        Brad, Thank you for your response, regarding the wheel. I did notice the tilt column. I have a turquoise/turquoise 64, minus your R3, with a over done restoration.
                        Your car is very well done.
