May 4th 2012:  I have 5 more metalflake colors being shipped.  They should be here around the 9th.  4 of these are .025 size which is hard to find and matches the size of the old boats and snowmobiles.  I also have silver coming in a .015 size.  This will be a little easier to shoot than the bigger brothers.

May 4th 2012:  1970-1971 Skiroule Green has been added.  A sprayout was sent to a Skiroule collector and she really liked the color.  I am looking for assistance for identifying a lighter Skiroule green, and to further determine year range of the 70-71 color.

April 17 2012:     I have 2 Skiroule colors mixed up.  I need to verify color match and years used.

April 08 2012:    I have 5 different Moto-Ski colors including Midnight Blue.  I have the paint, just need to find good samples to match them to and verify what years the colors were used and check the match and tint as necessary.

April 08 2012:  I have listed some of the Polaris colors.  I am still working on more, but have run into conflicting information on a few of the colors versus years used.  I also need to compare my white with some of the early samples and the reproduction hoods.  It is likely that a separate white will be needed for the reproduction versus original from what I am gathering?   

April 07 2012:    I received a bunch of pieces of a busted up Polycarbonate hood from Goose.  Why is this news?  I will be checking some different methods of repairing, painting, and even buffing on these pieces.  The beauty is that I don't have to worry about wrecking anything!  Stay posted for a bunch of pictures and results!
