    I'm trying a winter project this year. My 70GS has been Glacier White since 1986 (or before). I've wanted to know what the Burnished Saddle paint and Dark Gold vinyl would look like, so I bought 1:18 model and some color matched paints. I masked off the top and should get a coat of paint or two on tonight. Here is the "before" shot. 20200110_202856.jpg

    4 coats of paint. Starting to reassemble now. Dark Gold "vinyl" top is next.

    Kind of missed on the gold paint. I'll have to find something closer.
