Eric's '70 Fastback

Postby pressureangle » Thu Jan 12, 2017 6:57 pm

Just broke it down to start. Original color is... Fireflake Bronze? Looks more Gold than the Bronze I see on the internet, but computer colors don't always look right. I'll post some pics tomorrow for the record.

What format are the photos? I can't get any of them to come up. there's just a black & white "No Entry" sign at each location.
