Sleeping beauty likes her new rear end

Been busy painting her . Remember, she was a wine berry, but now she's getting ready for the wedding.The corner lights are new, since the originals were horribly cracked and discoloured.
The original center light or brake/running light is in fairly good condition.
I attempted to get as close to the original 86 aspencade colour, even though she's an Interstate, I like the colour scheme with the aspencade model.
I also had to reinforce her behind with a sheet of ABS. worked out well, only now she a little heavier in the buttocks region. I don't mind that ;) The original armrests are at the upholstery shop, they were way to worn to fix. Her luggage rack is also terribly faded, the chrome has seen better days. I can get a brand new rack with cyclemax, but its around $75, so i might send it off to get re-chromed if that option is cheaper :roll:
Lots more clothing to go, but I am enjoying myself and so is she :P

Looks very nice and I know she'll be pleased.
You may want to look into powder coating the luggage rack, they have many colors available.

The best of the beauties are usually a bit heavier in the rear, but that is okay. Nice to see that her new gear is so attractive, and clean - unlike that undressed hussy she was masquerading as a short time ago :roll:

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.
