It is so nice when you can put parts on the car, and leave them on the car.....

Looks good Mike.

I heard that's a hard color to get right the correct shade.

BB/CC Lemon Twist/Top Banana, it's PPGs entry-level "Shop Line". Not the best stuff, but I do plan on driving the wheels off of the car regardless.

Looks good Mike.

I heard that's a hard color to get right the correct shade.

Painter said the same, my car had been painted quite a few times (all FY1) and so I am not sure which is right. The color he showed me on the card looked right to me.

With minor tweaks, this is the gauge set I ordered. The voltmeter was swapped out for an AFR gauge.

Like the yellow gauges nice touch with body color. Also like the AFR idea.

Have never seen or heard of a steering quickener before. Curious how it installs.

Hotchkis has one in their challenger, it takes a bit of work and several connections to get done.
