Default "Tweety Bird" Revealed!!

Hi Cathie,

Thanks! Yes, the paint is a bit darker than what I expected. I knew that the dashpad yellow was going to be off some. I may have to have that repainted down the road. It has a slight greenish effect to it which might be the black underneath it trying to show through. When you look inside the car though at the yellow on the seats, and at the exterior paint, it does seem to be pretty close to a match. I looked at that pretty closely this morning. Keep in mind that you are looking at the interior of the car with the windows rolled up.

I had a number of people at other paint and body places and paint companies tell me it was difficult to match the interior paint color to the exterior paint color. Also, keep in mind that these pix were taken on a dark, overcast day this morning. Joe says wait til the sun comes out, that it will look brighter. In any case, that is the color it is...
