My 63 Nova Painted 2008 Corvette Crystal Red Pearl

I had Fields Auto Body in Corona paint my second classic car (they did my 69 Camaro as well). Came out awesome, 2008 Corvette Crystal Red Metallic Pearlcoat. Have new 17x7 4.5bs Billet Specialties FAST LANE rims to mount on this bad boy in a week or two when the Mitchelin 225/50R17 tires arrive from Tirerack. Check out the link for further pictures

Thanks guys. Just got back from driving the Chevy II back to Texas. I should have some new pictures with the new rims and all the trim installed in a few days for you guys. Cost was $5,000 and included all body work, 2 coats of 2 part epoxy primer, 2 kits of truck bedliner installed in trunk, 1 gallon Crystal Red, 1 gallon Pearl, 1 gallon of the new PPG Deltron 4010 Clear which is their new top of the line clear, removing all trim, tearing car down (fenders, doors, trunk, hood, glass), new front windshield, install front/rear glass with new gaskets, install trim, paint jams, paint inside car, paint car, paint under hood/trunk lid, reinstall all trim, bumpers, grill, fenders, hood, trunklid, glass. I'm very pleased with the outcome, it came out great and the pictures are not doing it justice because its hard to capture with a camera what the paint is doing in the sunlight (pearl/metallic coat). I'm hoping my Canon 40D on a good day will do a better job.
If you live in southern calif I highly recommend checking out Fields Auto Body in Corona, they do fantastic work.
