Thanks. When I first got my amphi it was a hot mess. Lips were literally formed from Bondo!

Dave the wave did an amazing job with the restoration but many others played a part as I collected parts from Gord, Hugh, Tommy in Tampa provided the red top, and others.

I spent many hours at the paint store before deciding on color. I was more interested in period correct than factory correct. I have the paint code somewhere but it is actually a Peugeot color from the mid sixties. I think Dave may have since used the same color for others.

When I started I was originally just going to have the rear quarters redone. Glad that I went all in and did the whole car.
