Have you thought about doing your own phosphate and oil conversion coating for the shock tower caps ?

Thought you might like to see what Silver Jade looks like in the sun against a blue New Mexico sky.  This car has original paint, patina and all.  Good luck.

Gorgeous. I happen to like silver jade,   Dave R.
Currently:

Formerly:

Seems to be a pattern here.

I've always liked silver jade, but it is one of those colors that I don't like when it is done in basecoat/clearcoat...it just doesn't look anything like I remember it from back in the day.  Something to consider as you're weighing your options...

My Q Code was Royal Maroon but I haven't seen one in the flesh that I liked, so I'm painting it black. But it's getting all the normal mods (shaker, slats, spoilers, magnums) but I'm changing to a white interior rather than black. Do what you want, who knows where the market will be when you come to sell.
My Friend had a Royal Maroon Shelby, It was awesome.
