I like it, but why not get a can of factory color mixed up? It couldn't be that much more expensive. :?

Anyway it looks like a really nice car. Hopefully it runs soon!

Almost all the clear has peeled off. Long-term plans for the car - after all of this $1000 nonsense is sorted out - involve a full disassembly and a bare-metal respray in Mach Green.

For now, though, the goal is dimestore zokusha. :)

Very cool car! Didn't know there were other Clevelanders on here :) We'll have to get together for drinks to talk j-tin and MG's at some point. Also, any Datsuns in that salvage yard? I'd love to go check that place out.

A few, but not many usable parts. Most are too rotten to save. They have GM J and F bodies as far as the eye can see, however...and a Subaru XT!
