Thanks for the thoughts, Mike.
I like the idea of white as well because it is supposed to be simple to spray.
I don't intend for the car to be plasti-dipped forever, but a temporary color change seems like a good idea to me - and the matte finish of plasti-dip won't be all that different than the current paint.

As of right now, I'm thinking of dipping the tailgate in red to match for now, and white maybe sometime this summer. We'll see.

I`ll vote white also as I`m guessing your not gonna do all the jambs so a neutral color would be best. Blue with red jambs would clash and flat black has been done to death.

white is a good color
had a 68 coronet in white sporty but not in your face and draws less negative attention for the police

Nah, I'm not painting it yet. No money there for body and paint work.

And when it does get painted, I don't know what color I'll do, but probably not white.

What color is the interior? Consider the 1966 color Bronze Metallic, it really looked sharp when mixed and sprayed properly.

Over 5 months since I last posted anything in here.
It reflects the insanity that was this summer and trying to get the car back on the road after its surgeries this winter.

Over the winter, I replaced all front end components, installed Wilwood Front Disc Brakes, installed larger torsion bars, installed a larger front swaybar, and met a ton of issues that were incredibly frustrating. To make a long story short, don't use Wilwood combination proportioning/distribution valves, they suck.

Finally I was able to start driving the damn car in early August and have been continuing to work on it.
Most recently I had a ton of exhaust troubles and had to replace the gas tank again because a piece of exhaust punctured a hole through the new tank.
I also installed a rear swaybar.

Accurate Automotive over in Hyde Park took care of my exhaust yesterday and I'm quite pleased with the results.

I have a set of subframe connectors and Hotchkis Non-Adjustable Shocks waiting to go into it soon.

I will post some updated pictures of the car tonight or tomorrow - I am headed to the Bass Pro-Shops show tonight after work.

Here is a recent picture from a show I attended on Sunday in Milford:

I've put just about 1000 miles on the car so far since all of the drama of taking it apart and not being able to drive it during the early part of the season.

On Wednesday night I installed a new fuel filter and fuel pump - car is running smoother now, but the 318 is still tired.

I am still tweaking the car day by day and this winter I have a few less intensive projects (stereo, more sound deadening, etc.) planned along with one very intensive project - a new motor.

I am really looking for a new motor for the car and at this point I care less about what it is and more about it being a relatively decent condition motor to start with, so if you know about something, please let me know.
