+1 for the cyber grey metallic. I went with the spiral grey metallic on the c5. Beautiful color. I was also liking the C4 color steel blue or blue steel.

I will also be using the stock fuel sending unit.
A braided line from the outlet of the stock fuel sending unit to an external Bosch pump then to the stock stainless feed line all the way up to the end of the hard line.
From the hard line, to a small piece of braided hose into the c5 fuel regulator.
From the regulator outlet, a braided hose to the engine rail connection.
Back at the regulator return outlet to the hard fuel return line then rubber hose at the back to the stock location at the tank.
There are several fittings and quick connects to get from point A-Z but it should provide a solid system.

Here is a thread that kinda shows it without the stainless hard lines to the engine...

Hope this helps.

Thanks !

This does help

Blueday: when I was trying to narrow down a color, I had a folder with cars I really liked. Yours was in it and I almost went with the same layout. It came down to that or the inferno orange. It was a toss up so I went with the color that stood out more just because people in this town can't drive and have people pull out in front of me all the time when I am in my dd. . I thought they would be more likely to see me with the orange.
But I do love that layout, and think it would look great.

Worst Job Ever!

Paint stripping is by far the worst job I've done so far. It's been an experience getting to raw fiberglass in all the different panels and the previous partial strip and repaint.
The good thing is that's it's almost over. Just the hinge pillars and the bottom of the inside of the doors to go!


I had to pause for a moment and make 'vroom vroom' sounds!!!

So when are you going to get me to put a spit shine on that finished paint job when it's ready?

Getting the black sealing agent (gunk) off the lower firewall and under side of the car is a very special thing to do as well.

Looking great.........

Ah yes! The bottom of the firewall and under the floor pan was the NASTYIEST job, but fortunately only took me one day! I came out from under the car filthy but happy it was over.

When I did the underside I figured it also doubled as a performance improvement..I bet it's 40# lighter after.

I also wondered now much weight I took off of mine between the undercoating stuff and all of the squeezed out glue that I chipped off. After that I went through and cleaned the whole underside. My right arm is hard to see but it is totally black, and my left arm has a white band on it where I wrapped plastic around it since I had just gotten stitches on there.



Yea; good times, but totally worth it.
