The painting is finished! Finally I am not embarrassed by the appearance of the car for the first time since ownership. Please visit the Paintjob page to see the entire process in pictures. Big thanks to friends David and Jesse for their assistance. If all goes to plan I will be servicing the car in the next few days, so it will have a complete mechanical and aesthetic freshen up all at once. A great time for the 180, the only problem now is finding a new nickname as Green Machine no longer applies.
