Excellent pic and a nice looking car. It'll definitely look great once you finish up the paint! I don't know what your plans are, but I like the tutone black and red scheme you've got going so far.

Thanks, the pic was taken by a friend of mine. I was thinking black at one time, but I have changed my mind. We still havent decided what colour as yet. (We as in the boss and me.)

Bill.

I couldn't resist a quick photochop blacking out the arches, sills, and hood. Get a spray bomb and get to it!

looks pretty good.
As for the color i'd say full red, no two tone.

unless you did something fun like stripes in black. that could work.

Megasquirt? I can't see the VAM unless it's under the heatshield.

Yes, the megasquirt was in there at the time of the pic. I had it running ok, but the autocross season was starting so I put the LA3 back in. I havent got back to it since then, and also my old laptop has crashed, so I lost all the info. Maybe this winter?
