    Hi. I think I am forced to strip my bass and repaint. I know the early eighties black paint was off black towards the green side. Does anybody know of a close match already out there? I may take it to the local specialty paint shop and see if he can match it. Any thoughts?

    Try Toyota or Honda colours for that period. I recall an anecdote that that's what some Japanese factories were using around then.

    I have been wondering that. I have seen some Mazdas with very similar colours. I find they have a colour verrry similar to Phantom blue. Thanks for the hint.
    I have an RSB body that I have been using as an experiment. I'll try on that first since that one is already stripped.
    Any other advice from any one else would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
