    Cool! I actually got my wife's rav out of my shop today, finally. I can almost see my t again. Thanks for the motivation! Perhaps I'll get back to work finishing the glass on the doors before the snow flies...

    Couple of pics after I painted it; the camera washed out the color, but it's Viper yellow - bright!

    you can talk all day long 'bout techs & specs and this and that and those & thems, but really, there is nothing like a picture (color or black & white) to really show what the car is like.

    Spanko you did good, congrats, John

    Nice pics, and a real nice T, pretty much perfect proportions in my eyes.

    Yellow is a funny color. Bright yellow is particularly hard to find. Light has a real affect on it, as do the bugs that you will soon become friends with...:)

    Very nice T

    I got this single stage urethane paint from Summit - right price, and a stock color (Viper Yellow). Found out it's a Sherwin Williams paint product, so local SW people can help with advice.

    Nice job Spanky. Yellow is on my top three list. Bright green is still #1.

    IMG_20171230_095413104.jpg IMG_20171230_095355991.jpg I saw this pic( which has been framed ) of your car when it was first posted and I believe it took 15 years to complete? This is my T at 5yrs, I envisioned 1 1/2 yrs tops to finish and be on the road! I seem to have lost my get up and go. But I am heading out now.
