Thanks for tempting more on the lights. What bulbs are you using?

Not sure what bulbs are in them, but I have two Hella 80/100s coming in the mail soon.

On an unrelated note I have a sty in my eye and it ****ing hurts.

Need to finish this up tomorrow, missing a few pics, but these two doors should be savable.

Also on a very happy note I have started getting weekends off, which means the next month or so is the grind to get ready for bantam in June.

Unless I can find a nice single stage urethane silver, I am open to suggestions if you find one (mobbins or project1).

e: What color should I go with?

Malibu Sunset or Royal Blue.... GO

Getting the sander from my Dad today or tomorrow. This weekend I'll be fixing up the higher parts of the doors and any rust left on the body. Next weekend I will most likely be painting it.

Color choices have been narrowed down to this:
Bright Blue
Lime Green
Yellow
Red

In order of likeliness.
