Hi Kevin, If you have the factory color code, check with your local automotive paint shop and ask them if they can match it in a spray can for you. I use an airbrush but I have had a few factory colors spray canned in the past. It may look expensive but consider that you can get a 12oz spray can for less that $20.00. Tamiya spray cans hold about 3.4oz and prices range from $9.00 to $10.00. The website below is just an example of what you may get at your local automotive paint shop: http://www.automotivetouchup.com/spray_paint_matched.aspx Hope it helps.
Just a small update on the progress. At the beginning of the build I wanted to get it low with just a few minor adjustments to the suspension, using a small set of custom rims but after a few mock ups I decided to follow the advice of my good friend “Mad Slammer” and use the wheels and tires you see below.

I have a few other options that can bring it low to the ground but the wheels are too small and don’t look right. I am really happy with the stance and the look so now I will move on to painting when the weather gets better. You can also see some assembly on the engine, getting it ready for a few plumbing & wiring details. Hope you like it and thanks for looking.
