Thanks....I just got it back from the body/paint shop last week. They completly stripped the car down to a shell and did what they call a show quality paint job. Kept it all original color except for the side moulding and black stripe around the bumpers. Thought it looked a lot cleaner all white.
Dave, post up some pics, I'd love to see the new look. I'd like to have mine painted very well like that, how much did it run you?
Including, some minor body work, fiberglass work on the hood, rolling the rear fenders and all new window trim it was a little over $6,800. Most of the expense was labor from dismantling and reassembling the car.
They are painted with a caliper paint. The fit is so close that I had to file the outside edge of the caliper to make just enough clearance. No more than 1/8" of clearance there.
I think you could now classify your wheels as "Caliper Centric"
