    Flippers Project number 2

    Well, the gold T/A is back from the spray shop and I am now sorting out the interior, new carpets, refurb the seats etc etc.
    So i have decided to make a start on old blue while this happens.

    Not sure which direction to go, was thinking of doing her white with a slight pearl and blue decals, or silver with a slight pearl and red and black decals, or go for the 1976 50th anniversary edition and drop in a 455ci lump for good measure. Car currently has a 400ci and a TH400 that are numbers matching.....

    Any suggestions gratefully received, she is a blank canvas at the moment....

    Silver with pearl sounds good Also will stand out from all the black, white , red T/As as those seem to be the colours most owners seem to go for . Good to stand out sometimes .

    White with the Blue stripes has always been a favourite of mine, classical with touch of attitude

    bit of an update on project number 2....
    going with the silver with pearl but was tempted by the white with the blue centre stripe but silver with pearl has won the day

    Should look good in silver. Top marks for sticking with Pontiac power too

    She is a fresh import Andy, tried buggering about with uk cars but by the time you deal with all the rust issues you kinda have to weigh up the cost of repairs against the cost of bunging one on the boat, this one has come from just outside LA and the other from San Diego (the gold one). They all have some surface rust issues but no rot or bad tin worm.
    The white T-top T/A that we will do next year is from Arizona, and had been sat in the desert for 18 years....




    Also the Formula 400 is virtually rust free, one owner car who had it garaged most of its life but had sat outside for the last 2 years in the California sun, so all paint faded etc
