Nice work.  I've been looking for Starlight black but have been told by a few places that it is not available.  Did you find an actual Starlight black?  Very interest to know.  Love all the pics.  There was one pic in the middle of them all of a side shot with the interior in.  Very nice.  Do you have any more pics of the completed interior?  Did you fabricate the seat covers or were you able to buy them somewhere?

WTD, You know I hate to admit but I'm completely ignorant about paint. A lot of other things too but I specialize in stupidity when it comes to paint. As far as I know my body shop guy custom mixes everything. He's been doing this for a long time and he has formulas, weights and other stuff he uses to match so I'm not sure if he added anything or if it's just black.
The completed interior pic really probably shouldnt be in that set as its a picture that I snagged from the net. I used it to help me decide between red/white or black/white. The picture is actually the goal for the completed interior.
Seat Covers from our PUI via our very own HITMAN.

Although Hitman does list the code for Starlight Black. Scroll down to 76

Thanks, I appreciate the info.  Nice interior from the net though.  Looks real sharp in the 76.
