Looks great! Now you gotta get the matching window switch.

I've been thinking of this for my DCS2, but was wondering how well he could match the Tangerine.Is your Inca Gold an exact match, or can you see a difference between that and the factory painted air-bag cover, etc. ?

The match looks pretty darn close to exact to my eyes. With your tangerine, though I don't know. That color from what I've seen of it is always changing. I think it would be tough to match, but I'm not an expert.

Hey guys Thanks, Inca Gold and Tangerine are the hardest colors to match. I've got a GREAT paint vendor and I think most painters mistakes lie in LAYERS, for any color. I usually do at least 4 coats and 2 coats of clear. This usually insures a good color match.[8)]

nehope,
Why did you paint over the vent area too? I dont know if I would like that on my Cruiser but the color matches yours. Are you going to do the rest of the interior trim too?

Hey Airbillster, I checked your site and you've got some nice looking stuff. I wish I wasn't so far away from Virginia, sure like your paint job on the flames. So far I haven't been able to find anyone around Oklahoma City that does air brushing. Don't know if I could afford it either.

Do you have to use a special paint to do this I been thinking of doing something like that myself. I also went to paint the gauge housing and the airbag housing also. I just wanted to know if there is anything special I need to know before I do it. I don't went it to peel or chip when I am done.
