    Talking Gen 2 Coupe - Painted

    Well I haven't posted much since there were some delays in my build (mostly due to spec Miata racing) but with the help of Mike E and one of his painters, we are back on track. My inspiration for the paint was the Essex Wire Cobra. I was looking for something different from the sea of blue and white but keep it clean looking. I think the painter nailed it (my opinion).
    The first start has already taken place along with the go cart (so no video at the moment). I can tell you that the SBF 363 is very strong and will make a statement on the road and the paint will surely turn heads. More to follow.
    ps John Dol what do you think?

    Enjoy. I am.......
