Re: Original paint colours
as the other guys say, do what makes YOU happy ...... You have to look at it every day ..... Simple as that.
if you want the AUTHENTIC ORIGINAL LOOK, then it should be painted in the colour it was born with, and in
acrylic. This move will also ensure its re-sale value, similar to "all-matching numbers" as I have with mine, as
much as "Wild Plum" would not have been my first choice, as my GT V6 was originally painted. I have let it
"grow" on me so much, that I now love it, and wouldn't change its colour for anything ! (Original-Tragic!)
To me, it's like having an un-touched 1978 Allan Moffat Ford XC Cobra 1978, that was originally only painted White around Blue Stripes, and then saying I'm going to completely change it to all Blue or all White.
If you don't car about AUTHENTIC ORIGINAL blah blah blah or the exact colour as new, then
change everything to your heart and wallet's desire, especially if it's already beyond original.
I'm just an "original-tragic" !
