Things have slowed down a bit due to equipment and health problems.

But the backside has been painted.

There's been no update for a while, any progress?

Looking forward to seeing it installed.

The 05 Vert is a very special car indeed! It was the first year for the convertible option and the last year for (in my humble opinion) the better interior. I have an 05 touring edition vert with the turbo lite engine. I think 05 was the best year for the PT and an 05 GT Vert is as good as it gets in the entire PT line.

Unfortunately some health and technical problems have slowed things down a bit.

Should be back on schedule soon for final paint.

Bet you all thought this project died due to lack of interest.

Well, after many trials and tribulations some progress is being made.

a primer sealer is finally done.






And then we finally get down to the black Acrylic Enamel sprayed on as best we can do it.







Some day we may actually attach it to the car.
