Finished in the always desirable color of Silver Grey Metallic, he car displays show quality paint. I'm the picky type, nd have spotted only a couple of minor prep flaws on close inspection, therwise prepare to be impressed. The body is laser straight with excellent sight lines. No orange peel, verspray or tape lines, he car was completely apart for the repaint, hen block sanded and polished to perfection. The car has no chips or scratches, nd zero dings anywhere, t's ready for the show field. Tires are quality Michelins with excellent tread, ll 4 wheelcovers are perfect.
Lights, ignals and lenses are all in beautiful condition. The car displays both fender notches as well as the factory correct spot welds along the inner fenders, ssuring their originality.
Correct locking gas cap and exhaust extensions. Both bumpers front and rear are outstanding. All of the car's brightwork is exceptional with no trace of pitting. The soft top cover lid is free of dents or damage.
