              Thanks my painter is a pretty talented guy, lots of experience and patience. I was lucky that the car was really solid but he still had a lot of work.

                    LOVE the color, I should probably do a skid plate too.

                    Very nice! Is that QQ1? That skid plate looks awfully tall! Is it a stock replacement height?
                    What type of pan are you using that you need all of that protection? Ahhhhh, now to put
                    everything back together. Keep the pic's coming. Maybe we can learn a few things from
                    your re-assembly? Quarter windows assembly? Good luck, looks great!

                    Yeah I had a Milidon 7Qt pan that hung down 2 inches so I made up one to protect it.

                      20201013_203438.jpg I have a 68"X" and struggled with the oil pan dilemma until I just said, "Screw it!"
                      and pulled the trigger on a Milodon road race pan with an internal pickup that
                      I enlarged the block passage to 1/2". So, what's the paint code?

                      That pan looks awesome!! Hope you are using a HP pump to keep your oil up :) The color is a custom 2 stage mix for a b5 look only a lot more mica for sunshine pop, you guys have it good in the states for paint we can't get the good stuff with the hi volatiles here in Canada :D

                      The pan is a 35180 Milodon with a 18338 1/2" pickup. I'm also using a Molodod high pressure/Hi volume
                      pump with 1.200 tall rotors. Have to have oil to make HP! The paint looks very nice!
