So all these posts and all we have is that one shitty pic still?
BK I am really surprised to see you feel so relaxed about this cabinet color issue, being one of the high end restorers. Zitt and jvspin have good eyes along with myself and many other anal pinheads. I've owned a HUO FT with NO fade and it should be more red/orange as mentioned earlier. Red is very difficult to capture in a picture, but when you have that original cab next to it in the same pic, that under rail/hinge area gives it away.
If fixing the issue is too expensive then yes I would ditch this project as well. The idea sounded awesome and I feel it would sell well as I hate decals. I don't care if God put them on, they are still friggin stickers. If the colors are that far off though, that pretty much kills it.
