Just finished this car. I've always wanted to do a black version of this car.

A long time ago, I had a conversation with a car-repair friend of mine(he did restoration work also, mainly British). He told me that black paint shows up imperfections more easily than any other color. I wonder if that's why, when I see a flawless glossy black paint job, I can just get lost looking at the shine. The flowing lines of the P3/P4's make a wonderful canvas on which to lay a good paint job. Thanks, Chris.

Not a snob in this hobby, after all it will be gone, if we keep on going like we do, and I have nothing to prove so I keep on posting because I have nothing to gain.
It's our duty to remember the past so we can have a future.
