Awesome job! I was reading those posts and by page three I was saying to myself "man, if he puts Group4 fenders on that car, I'm gonna have to go down there and take it from him". It is getting pretty close to being my perfect alter-ego Super-Pantera.
As far as color choice goes, the orange does look pretty hot, but for a car that REALLY stands apart, the lime would be awesome as well (and unique). Just so you can get an idea of what direction might work, here are a few options. Personally, I would seriously consider Lambo lime.
Great work and posts. Thanks!
