After months of debating the perfect color, including a trip to Werks Reunion in Monterey during Car Week 2021 for more inspiration, we were under a time crunch to decide – we ended up with a special blend of silver to really tie in the ethos of the old meets new. A perfect mix between vintage and modern.
Simo, the owner of SV Auto, recommended Santana’s Auto Body in Ontario, CA for the job. With the help of owner, Mike Santana, and the rest of our team, we went with an exterior color that not only shows off the amazing metal and body work completed by Santana’s and Perry’s Custom Metal, but also ties in with the ultra-modern cerakote trim and burgundy found on the car’s interior.
Back at SV Auto, the engine has returned from Prato Motorwerks and the engine harness by Rywire is squared away. We go over tons of the components we’ll be assembling in the next episode, including the Stoptech Big Brake Kit, cerakoted to match the other components, titanium components from Chasing J’s, our customized Rennline tow hooks, the completed roll bar, muffler reinforcement from Fabspeed, CSF’s first articles of our new air-cooled oil cooler options and more.
