Thanks Jim.Its 2B Red.I almost went viper red,but after debating which way to go for over a week,I decided to keep it the original red.When he first did the inside,I didn't really like it that much,it looked way orangey,but he said the outside will look much better and more red.He was right it looks great,a nice red.Even he wasn't to sure,but he likes it also,he said the color is growing on him.I picked up both fenders tonight,I'll post a pic or two.

I love the look of fresh paint that's done well. Great looking fenders. The car should come out beautiful.              Ron
