    Yeah, I know. I mean that because it's 1/8th of "lost thread"for the lug nut... I wasn't really sure how much of a spacer was "too much". Maybe that would be ok... Definitely easier.

    Got my paint test fender back and had a question for you...did you make any changes to the code 492 paint? It definitely looks bluer in your pictures than in person. I was thinking about getting another pint mixed with double shots of the two blue colorants.

    Code 492 / Code 29 80z blue

    I don't remember much about the 492 to be honest. I would have to go back and look at my old photos. I vaguely remember it being fairly blue.more like the one on the right of your pic than the muted blue on the left.

    Sorry for the lack of updates. Most of the progress has been resolving tiny issues with wiring, etc.

    BUT! On Sunday I drove the car under its own power for the first time since 1993! It only moved about 30 feet in the driveway, but it felt great!

    More posts will be coming soon. Heading to interior shop soon!

    So... What's the story? Is it still in the shop for a headliner?

    Long story.

    She is currently sitting in my garage, with everything done but the seats. (I was able to fix the misaligned gear in the seats though!)
