I am having the car painted by a local shop, they did some work on my 300ZX several years ago and it still looks great. I opted to stay with 920, much to the chagrin of my firend who said white, red or black would be "great" looking. Having acquired parts for this project since 1987, I figure I should keep the car as original as possible.
The car has a Jan 70 production date, so the vin is pretty low. Mileage is less than 40K and the only non-oem parts (other than the dealer installed A/C) I could recognize when we disassembled it were the battery, four (4) tires, seat covers, radio speaker, exhaust system and prior 920 repaint.
I hope to have the car back in November (just when the weather turns damp and cold!).
Your car is coming along "right fine," in no time it'll be on the
road with the joy of owning and driving overcoming your in-
vestment of time, effort, and money.
Are you doing the paint yourself? That #920 looks great,
that is the color of our #13 car. I got "blessed out" recently
forcalling it "butterscotch," I know that "Sahara Gold" is the
real name for it. I've heard it called a lot of things, some not
Whatcha got for a VIN #? I see those flow-thru outlets on the
hatch which tells me it is lower than about #22000 (I don't
know if this is the '70 you cite in your User ID block....) If it is
the '70, you must come in lower than #10000.........
