I am building what I call a restomod. My car is Dusk Pearl I bought it 25 years ago to restore. It has the original drive-train, but needs literally everything restored. Frankly, it would be better to just buy another restored car. So, I have decided to build what I really wanted, which is a car with a modern drive-train and brakes but the looks of a factory car. By staying close to factory, it is a timeless look. I have chosen yellow. It is an iconic pastel 50s color. but you don't see them everywhere. I love turquoise and red, but there are many of them. Anyhow, I have always thought Chevrolet should have painted the dash yellow like in the turquoise and red cars. But the type A in me that wanted to restore a car would always look at it and say "That's not right." So I am asking your thoughts and opinions on which way to go. I think I lean toward the black stock dash paint scheme.
