Nice work. I wish I could get my wife's car started. I ran into a bracket issue.

Don't listen to me, what do I know? I've only been doing this for 30 years.

I hope you're talking Big Block brackets and not income bracket

What brackets are you looking for?

Not faster, just get pulled over more.

...and yes Dave, I meant big block brackets. I gave up on trying to make it original "style" and put the up dated brackets on it. This means I only have to extend the alternator harness and make the A/C brackets. (instead of making everything)

Don't listen to me, what do I know? I've only been doing this for 30 years.

I'm not sure what GM called it, (Maybe Cranberry?) but it is the factory color for that car. They used the underside of the trunk lid to do a match and mixed it up per the analysis. It is a PPG single stage urethane.
