Your attention to detail on this car is beyond astonishing. I would like to suggest to you that you should remove the remote mirror, and make that one of the last things you install. The mirror head is extremely fragile, and can snap off and fall to the ground. This is why I found so many of these mirrors in Chevrolet dealers, the mirror head had broken at the plastic spider and fell off, never to be recovered. I myself lost one while driving on the highway, when the spider broke, and it was run over by a passing car. Now, I tape a plastic bag over the mirror when driving to car shows and remove it when I arrive. Don't want to loose another.

Well, Chevrolet called it “Meadow Green” in 1964.

Yes, they do look very similar. However, my convertible will have a white top and fawn (light beige) interior - with factory A/C.

I’m well aware of the mirror’s fragility. Right now the car is just sitting in Kyle’s showroom so the mirror isn’t going to fall off. As a point of fact, I haven’t yet hooked up the remote cables, so it’s easy to remove the mirror when transported. Also, I will replace the plastics parts with newer, stronger pieces before I do drive it anywhere.

But then, this car isn’t going to be taking any significant road trips in the near future, anyway.

Outstanding work! Classy restoration.

One question. Shouldn't the dash be a darker shade of tan?

Keep up the good work it looks really nice.

"... newer, stronger pieces..."??? Could you please elaborate? I'm at a point where I'll want to assemble my remote mirror. Scott

This car is shockingly beautiful. Color combo, options, masterwork. It blows me away to think that a car 55 years old looks this new.

I'm a LM guy, but this might be the most beautiful Corvair ever! smileys with beer
