Decided on the complete black out look.

Lights up nice through the Nite-Shades blackout spray.

Thanks guys! With the long hours and more difficult work behind me, it's fun to continue on with the project making these small rewarding changes.

Thanks, hopefully my vinyl guy will get the stripes and rear panel installed this week. I'll try and clean the car up from all the handling and apply it's first coat of polish, then find a nice spot to take some pictures with a nicer backdrop to post.
