Len,

I'm thinking candy gold at the rear and a candy red fade from about the back of the doors forward. Definitely HOK paint. I don't have the HOK paint chart handy, sorry. Will be cool, for sure!

Jim
Those are Awesome Images !

I agree HOK paint ,
maybe even a base of Butterscotch or Gama Gold tint under the Red or in the Red Darken it Up

Len,

Keep us posted of the progress on this build. I worked on a few Pro Mods with Greg Holt (Billys Son) I'm sure he'd like to see some pics of this when you get it finished. TC

Len,

I'd be glad to ask him if he can remember any of the colors they actually used on the car. I usually only see him at the track and racing season is just about done here this year as far as the PM's go. However he has a shop that's only about a 30-45 minute drive from mine so I'll be able to contact him and see what I can find out pretty easily for you. Talk to you soon.
