Show cars require a of special details to be real winners.
In trying to build a show car we all know you need a super straight body and shiny paint, but how do you set yourself apart from the others? Small details. Here are a couple of things for my Spoiler II that I have done. This first photo is of the tail light and back-up bulbs. First, I completely stripped them, had the bodies replated the correct finish. After re-assembly, I reproduced the paper tag with the part number on it. If you have this paper tag still on your car and it doesn’t agree with this shade of green, I would not be surprised. I have three different shades of the color green for the same tag.
The photo below shows the headlight portion of the main wiring harness. Simple Green is fantastic as a cleaner on these parts. These wires were re-wraped, with sticky black cloth tape on the terminating ends. Plus new aluminum ties were used on the wires. The restored ones are the bottom ones and the top ones have yet to be done.
It’s all in the details.
