Hey All,
I thought I'd post an update to see if anyone home. I always stop in and don't see many new posts here. Anyway I wetsanded wvcat yesterday and she is getting close to paint. I sanded the eliminator stripes off and am thinking I might not put them back on but I haven't decided for sure yet. I figure by next weekend she will be ready for paint.I'm still not sure she is going to end up either but I'm sure there is a change in the works. The colors I'm considering are light metalic blue, dark metalic blue, silver, blue pearl over white base coat, shelby blue (67) or viper blue. I probably won't know until I look at chips.

hi john!!

thats awesome that the cat is almost ready for its new coat.... YAY!!!

i love the pearl paints.... absolutely gorgeous... oh! that was just my lil' two cents!!

by the way....
do you have any guidance on installation of a rear spoiler? i have one for the 69 cat-vertible but we dont know where exactly to put the drill points.... any info on how to get this task completed would be super!!

hope to see you in charlotte over labour day.... the carolina cougar club will be having our annual show in conjunction with the MCA grand nationals at Lowes Motor Speedway....

Hey KK,
I could take measurements for you but my car is not an original eliminator and the spoiler is a repo. You may know this but on a 70 the inside of the trunk has holes cut out to allow the access to the spoiler bolts and 69's don't have them. If you know someone close to you with a 70 you may want to look inside there trunk lid to see the noles and get a measurement to the center of the hole. When I'm down in the garage tommorrow I'll take some measurements for you.
BTW I picked a custom color from a sherwin williams rod & custom color fan. Its saphire blue, its kinda like a royal blue on steroids. It has pearl and metalic in it but the metalic is small flakes. I also picked up some silver for stripes.
