Well I completely made up my mind on the color. My dad said he is or was going to call you and were thinking this weekend if that is a problem with you. Kandy black cherry is the color and silver stripe up the cowl not on roof then on rear. Just one stripe. If you have an email address I can send the picture of the paint color cause were worried about the color. You of all people now that there are alot of shades of red. But looking at this color first you think black then its like a really deep red. Thanks

We'll be there watching on occasion. I'm not wasting my car there though, too risky and too much money to beat on it there. We'll be at TRP, QCR, Milan, Columbus, New York International and Pittsburgh just like we are every year.

A lot of people are feeling just like you Donnie if Alex would put just a little back into the track [and I am sure there would be plenty of help] it could be so nice. Sunset is my hometown track and I will support it by giving labor towards fixing it up, but it is getting harder and harder to go fast there the poor thing needs a little tlc all Alex has to do is say the word and I will be there but not to keep patching it up but to fix it right !!!

Believe me, this isn't meant as a slam against Alex by any means, but I think he doesn't realize the power the cars of today have and what a bumpy track can do to a race car. But on the other hand, Alex is in his 80's and I don't think he wants to invest in upgrading the track, especially when it's for sale.
If the track is like many of the roads we travel on after this winters freezes and thaws cycles, it'll only be worse than in the past. Is there a answer, no, I don't think so.

But yeah I understand what everyone means the track is rough and needs TLC. skip same with me and my dad if alex wants to ever fix it up we would be there to help. My dad and I will take the car to sunset for a while and than we will go to quaker and thompson.

Also this is from Auto Air Series 165$ a gallon just paint not including anything else. I wasnt sure where you order from and if they had a website to look at colors.

Ryan thats not a bad price average paint is 25.00 a quart for base although I have never heard of auto air series but if we need to looks like black cherry with heavy purple pearl.I have some black cherry and I can get some pearls so I could try and tint it myself that,s if you can,t buy it.

i can always buy a quart to see what it looks like and then bring it when i bring the car up to see if you can match it with your paint supplier?

That might be a tri color meaning you put a base on then put a pearl clear on to taste then put pure clear on. One thing you want to keep in mind is repairability colors like these don,t like to be matched if they get scratched or something LOL
