1930u I love black but this one can only be candy apple red. I'm not going to use real candy because I plan to drive this car often...so I want something I can spot repair. Right now I'm investigating some new motorcycle paint jobs. Many look like true candy but their just a conventional 2 stage paint process.

Actually, there's a candy red washer and dryer at Sears thats a dead on what I'm looking for too. So I'm trying to invetsgate that paint too. I'm a ways off but I continue to work on this junker every spare minute I get.

Otherwise you could check the NHRA spec. book or check with a fabricator or race shop.

I also saw a straight axle kit on eBay the other day. It was suppose to be an engineered system..it was really cool.
Your welcome, Its going to be amazing when you get it finished, Have you decided what color your going to paint it?
