Ah, the good old Snowball effect.
I've seen it all too well. Yes, she did pick a good color, funny thing is I already have a gal and a half of Black Cherry that I was going to paint my last project. She's just not a fan since I did a chop top VW many years ago and painted it Black Cherry. Oh well.
I'm trying to find some wheels she likes. WE don't like the same things, though she did say my last 2 projects, the first thing that people said was "nice wheels" so only now will she let me pick what I want. Which is very limited when going with the wide wheels/tires. I was trying to show her that if we paint the car Pearl White, with chrome bumpers & door hands & mirrors and window trim ... with the black plastic front spoiler - we could paint the rear body panel black (like a SS car) and maybe some black spoke wheels with chrome lips. I thought about the carbon fiber look for the front & rear spoilers, but then it looks like you put on something and didn't paint it???
I'm not a fan of the coil over kits unless you do the full blown 4 link or 4 bar set up - which I'm THIS CLOSE TO SAYING YES TO, but I've got to decide on something and really fast. I was "just" going to do the shock relocation thing. There are some decent cheap ones and full blown righteous ones. I was going to talk to the speed shop doing my tubs how much more to just put the DSE relocation kit in there between the tubs while they are there. Might just be the easiest way to go ... other wise I'll be into the car another $4500-$6500 and it's NOT going to be my final car.
Dang it. You guys have some very nice stuff and I'm SO close on the fence to either saving a few bucks and staying on the $25k-$30k value side OR just go for it and build a $65k-$85k car and enjoy the crap out of it. I've got easy access to a LS3 motor, but just don't want to pull that trigger just yet. I want to save it for my '69 or even '68 down the road.
Oops. I've got to go. The Abominable Snowman is knocking at my door.
Have a good weekend everybody.
