    I saw that issue at Walmart-my heart skipped a beat! I had a blue convertible 1:1, black convertible top, Hurst 4 speed, tach on the console, 345 hp, manual steering and positrac, all on 14 inch wheels with wire wheel covers. All this at age 17, I paid $995 for it.

    First 2 Tone
    Another question from the Tbird. How long do I wait until I shoot my second color? The tips on using frosted tape n clear worked out great.

    I use the Dupli-Color "3" system: Primer,Color then clear. I start sanding my first coat with 320 then after each next coat I go 600,1000 and finish with 2000. I do the same on all three: Primer, Color, Clear. Then I compound using Turtle Wax brand and final polish with McQuire"s Scratch X. The results are awesome.
