Great color did you paint it yourself? I very much want to try my luck painting my car. I have painted a fender once. Motor cycle tanks and things like that never a whole car.

Just a little hint on OP/SEC (operational security) don't post pictures showing your license plate. Cover it before taking the picture or edit it in photo shop. There are nut jobs out there that will run your tag and show up at your home. Its a shame and I don't think we have any of those here but you never know. I have seen it happen before so I don't ever take the chance on it.

BTW. I like the blue paint on your car, can't wait to see it done.

The color is Ultra Blue Metallic it is from PPG out of I believe a 91 GM book.  Thanks for the advice about the plate I wasn't that concerned because I have yet to transfer the title and the guy I bought it from moved out of wisconsin.

With the plate you can get the VIN with that your address as soon as you submit for your tags. I have worked with people who do that for a living. I don't ever post any identifing info on a general forum. Like I said I don't think you have anything to worry about but I had much rather be safe than sorry.

Ohhh, She's gonna be a beauty. My car dropped her head in shame when I was looking at your pictures. She said, "Rob, when can I get some paint like that?"   ;D

I want paint too!!!!  :'(

Assuming, of course, that you use your home address for the registration.  You don't have to do that.  But in general I'm pretty careful to not post either my license plate number or my VIN.  (hehehehehehe!)
