Took the car to the body shop this morning. In goes Ontario Orange, out comes Atomic Orange Metalic. :Hurray:

I should get it back around the end of July. :lurk:

Can't want to drive it again.

Cheers

Vito

To say I'm jealous is an understatement! Mine has been sitting in the garage untouched since November and, with our wedding only about 50 days away, I doubt I'll touch it again until sometime in late July. :ack:

Is your body shop going to take photos along the way so that you have them along with the rest of your restoration documentation?

I've always thought C3's looked good in orange. I'm anxious to see how yours comes out. Keep us posted! :thumbs:

Tim,

I got some pictures of the car after being painted :D . Can you post them for me? I really like the Atomic Orange on the C3.
Send me an E-mail to vito.pascale@kadena.af.mil I will send what I have. :thumbs:

Many Thanks

Cheers

Vito

Here they are - photos of Vito's fresh paint. Looks pretty darn good if you ask me! Those reflections in the paint look perfect! :cool: :cool:

Many Thanks Tim.

Since I couldn't find any volunteers to help with the body work I had it done for me. :D As you can see I still have some work to be done inside the engine compartment. I am happy that I went with this color, it turned out nice.
The car should be fully assembled this week. I will update later. :thumbs:

Cheers :cheers:

Vito

Wow!

That color looks fantastic on this car, better than it looks on a new Vette.

Wish I was at that stage - seeing fresh paint (on ANY of my projects).

Very nice, can't wait for the final assembly pics.

Here's a second batch of photos sent by Vito. All I have to say is that if I lived in the area I'd be paying this shop a visit. The finish looks amazing!!! :cool: :cool:
