Getting my insurance stuff together right now, then a temp registration so I can get down to MVD next week so I'm not technically graduated. Lousy pics and still a few odds and ends to do but here she is.

Michael,
absolutely beautiful . Welcome to the wonderful world of green :D :D . I wish I could have gone scoopless but my intake is too high. Congrats again, it's stunning.

Thanks all, I'm very happy with it (thanks to you-know-who for the secret paint recipie!). Still have some do-dads to add on and also some de-bugging to do, the wire diet I got from Weatherby was a real POS and has had to be bypassed in several spots to actually get things to work. Still missing turn signals and hi-beams but the rest works. I need to undercoat the wells and the footbox where it hangs down past the body on the driver's side.
Don Maggiore here in town did the final bodywork and paint. I'll have to find somebody with a better relationship with a camera than I do to really show it off. The green looks different depending on the light. From a bright BRG in the direct sun to nearly black in the shade. I love it with the exception that it's a completely innapropriate color for someone that lives on 2 acres of dirt. :D

Some of the people I couldn't have done it without are:
Mr. Pink, Steve V., Don M. Chris L, and a host of others.

It's a good feeling to 'get there' ain't it? ;)

Thanks again for the bulb seal.
