Thanks for the encouragement.
Peter, regarding dual bearings in the rear, I will be continuing with the stock configuration based on feedback from one of our vendors.
Jan, the car will probably be painted in Rosso Corsa. The body will be stock with chrome bumpers and shiny stainless trim. Wheels will be Campy clones painted to look stock. The interior will also be stock. The engine bay will depart from stock and be finished in car color with a polished ZF, polished intake manifold, and some other polished components, similar to the engine bay on my 1971 Pantera.
The picture below shows the roof finished and ready for paint.
