My personal choice and >current issue too. SAAB always seems to look better in black tie. My current car is white (Saab's Cirrus White colour!), but today I finally figured out (doh!) that the rust eating into the hood just back from the front lip is coming from inside the pressed metal fold just above where the sprung hood latch attaches... grrr. so I might replace it with the hood that is in almost perfect condition on my donor car which is metallic blue. It'll match the interior of the car which is what I'd call 'steel blue' and gray. Next move is get some funky seat covers. The old sheepskin ones are gawjus to sit on but they're quite worn and really make the car look sad inside. 8-) Regards, Craig. -- Craig's Saab C900 Page --> http://nospam/~c900 Sydney, NSW Australia Craig's Saab C900 Workshop -- For all Saab C900 Enthusiasts world-wide! http://www.nospam.net http://www.nospam c900nospam.apana.org.au Come and explore our site, and check out our web-forums, mailing list, etc.
