    Progress has been slow, but hoping to move on to paint before too much longer.

    Haven't made the final decision on body color yet, but I'm leaning toward Sun Beige (one of the original colors in '51). Got an offset from PPG Color Library for that. It would take crimson striping (belt line and wheels).
    I am going with a painted grill (body color), and the back bars would be Waldorf White. Internet search says 1977 Subaru Plaza White 21W/90096 is a pretty close match.
    Using the hosts "Champagne" interior paint; and I found reference to a Taupe (SEM 15423) for the steering mast, shift handle, and steering wheel.
    Flat black for the frame and miscellaneous bits.
    All of that sound right, or other suggestions?

    Any other colors my painter will need, or does that get it?

    Thanks y'all.

    It's not legal in California to shoot single stage paints on motor vehicles these days but a few still do it .
