Greens can be tricky as some other colors, the lighting plays a big part. The Apple green wheels on Sarah look darker, a more 'correct' Apple Green' in certain sunlight. If I correct the wheels, I'd have to correct the pin stripe also and...it's painted on. I'll live with the apple green they are now.
I had a CJ5 once, yellow during the day, lime green in mornings and evenings!!!

With the car and paint in that nice of condition I wouldn't dream of repainting it, even if I didn't care for the color.

Not so fast Grasshopper!!! How can you take off a painted on pinstripe without damaging the base paint also?

Don't answer that here...this thread is for colors and bodies.

Kind of hard to tell with the dark side facing the lens. From here, it does look black.

1930 Standard Two Window Sedan (no cowl lights and plain interior). I believe these to be the correct shades of Chicle and Copra. Not looking to argue, just my opinion.
