Tape it up real well when you do and find some thick bed sheets to cover the front end to not scratch the paint , don't let the wife know or you wish you had a Pinto wagon to sleep in if she finds out 🙀

You know, it really looks good. I have a 79 I need to paint, and that orange looks awesome. Blue interior though in decent shape. I gotta think about spraying it black now :)

Thanks! Gave me more ideas!

If you interior is in great shape and the body is straight you can color match the seat color with the outside color , but make it a deep mailtalic blue , with some nice wheels , that will turn heads for sure ,

I'm thinking a metallic grey now! That should match fine with the blue interior!
