    Beautiful car!  You should be proud — I certainly would be!

    Awesome job, Rocky! ANd 18 months is not bad a t all. One of the Speedster guys has been on his build more than 18 years.

    Congratulations Rocky!

    Now it’s drivin’ time!

    I think I’ll pull out my build pictures (from 1982!) and post them here over the next nine months! Like reliving the build!

    Paul that’s be cool if you did post those pics. Some of us (mainly me) might learn something from them.

    Everything I photographed is probably also in the Classic Roadsters assembly manual.

     

    But when I get around to it, I’ll start scanning. Remember, 1982 pics are way before digital.

    The only digital stuff (per say) back in 1982 was with the TRS-80 computer. Okay…maybe the Comoder 64! LOL

    Rockyx, I also like the looks of your painted wheels. I am thinking of painting mine as well and was looking for the silver/chrome paint you used a Walmart, but couldn’t find anything that met that description. I did fine a rustoleum High Tech wheel paint in the automotive section that is recommended for both plastic and steel. Is that what you used? Thanks.

    Take a look at mid merica motorworks. They sell Argent Silver which is as close as you can get to he stock silver.

    Walmart likely doesn’t carry it, but I bought Duplicolor High Performance Wheel Paint in Silver at O’Reilly’s and was quite pleased with the outcome.  Supposedly it’s “extra-tough” to ward off chipping and scratching…

    It has tiny metallic particles in it that leaves the wheels with a nice sheen and bit of sparkle in the right light.  Two cans did front and back of four wheels in pretty sad shape — leaving about half a can for other touch-up purposes….

    How did you get those two-cans to paint your wheels?
    I can never get them to do a darn thing!

    Sam, what Kent found at O’Reilly’s is that same stuff I found at Walmart.

    Rocky – just thru your thread and didn’t notice a name for your car. Should have a name that reflects how far you brought it. LIGHTYEAR maybe
