    Finally- the color coat!

    The moment that makes it all worthwhile!
    Had a very curious thing happened yesterday, I brought some bits to the powder coater that I needed done body color (Pearl White) — the rear fenders stays (separate thread) and the attachments for the spare tire and tool roll belts. Believe it or not, the exact match , and I mean dead on, is Dupont’s epoxy powder “Pearl White”. Talk about Freaky Friday!

    Jim and Others,

    The Pearl White is very, very nice. I'm glad you were able to match it in a modern formula. What are your plans for the trim?

    Best color combo for the 3, IMHO! And the darker red top is a great addition as well. That's what I did with mine several years (cars!) ago. It's now in the stable of another member here, TR3Pilot:

    Nice! Isn't it great how in one paint session all the pain of the body work goes away?
