    It is a very cool color, but man it is hard as hell to get pics of because of what you just said...my iPhone just cant take the true color....i am very pleased with the color and as you said ....it's reactions to lighting. Thank you for the kind words Irish! It is much appreciated!

    Nova that is huge compliment! Thank you, when you can take something that was designed for something else and never meant to go together and make it look like it was meant to be there all along and people say that........THAT is a huge accomplishment and compliment. Thank you! :thumb:

    There is a Toyota in my neighborhood that color. I always check it out on dog walks. It’s a really nice color in person, and that’s on an ugly Toyota body. I can imagine how it pops on your SHO.

    Zpak.... My wife picked the color because i was too indecisive between 3 colors. 1 week later my youngest daughter comes home with her 18 Tacoma TRD Offroad in Calvary blue and was all excited...after looking it over I said " you know this is the color I'm painting the SHO right?" Her mouth dropped and she said " awe man, your car is going to make my new truck look so bad..." :dribble:

    Working on the SHO today... I was able to get the ECU harness back in the car and hooked up, FORD manuals suck for telling an old man that has a failing memory where to put all the looms at to fit them properly and that harness bracket that fits to backside of engine is a MF and the guy that designed it needs his balls glued to his thigh... damn that thing is hard as hell to get in there... it doesn’t help that FORD put the push plug in the wrong place either... I reinstalled it in the correct place and what do ya know it all fit.... that’s the kind of work you get for going with lowest bidder I guess... tomorrow I’m hoping to get the rest of the harness plugged in at minimum to start the engine back up

    I was able to get all the harness back in and all the critical systems hooked up, still a couple more things to do and then go back over everything but I will be starting her back up next weekend to prove everything then I can start removing wiring for deleted systems and starting the harness tuck
