I have a factory "color to sample" yellow that I have owned for over 10 years that others have expressed an interest in however I have always resisted the temptation to part with it. Mine is a old school modded one that was used for light DE 1985 to 1989 so certain folks would prefer one or the other. Let me know as I might be able to send someone your way. Oh I just did the Patrick Motorsports oil cooler/to filter swap on a high HP turbo also. Great extra protection when you have much better cooling options.
The paint scheme you see is Ferrari Fly Yellow. I painted the car about 6 years ago in this shop (its my basement - it has a "boat entrance") and it's PPG base coat/clear coat (I'll never use it again). It took about 6 months to prep the car and two days to lay the paint and wet sand it. It took another month to put it all back together - all windows were out, doors off, hood off, new front and rear-end, all new weather seals and so on.
