Ha! I was right, it was Porsche Silver. The first 500 were apparently pearl white, but the finish was unstable so they refinished a bunch in the Porsche Silver: http://www.stratcollector.com/newsdesk/ ... 00093.html

mmmm...the silver is sexier than the pearl white, IMO...by a factor of 6.837 :D

Lovely stuff Phil. These colours are so retro. Very pastel like. They remind me of the colours fn some of the classic Hollywood movies. Think High Society.

Phil wrote:Me too, there's a few colours in these sheets that I wouldn't mind trying out, it would get pretty expensive in wood and lacquer to try all the ones I like though 8/ So far I've got gas for Sherwood Green and Burgundy Mist, I'm thinking a Sherwood Green P would look pretty awesome :hmm

There are 2 of my favourite colours outside of Fiesta Red and LPB.

The Burg Mist Lull bass at Bass People has been giving me GAS for 3 years!!! :drool:
