True, if your cruiser is older than approx. 1978, but newer ones were whiter AFAIK.I believe the 045 would be too white, as the original 033 was not pure white.
Once the bezel, top, and your new rims are done, they will look fantastic on Nordic Blue...looking forward to pics
I do not believe this to be correct, and there are a great many posts that seem to support my thoughts on this. Either way, you have to be happy with your rig, and you would not be the first to go to a whiter white, so if the whiter white does it for you, then it is all good by meTrue, if your cruiser is older than approx. 1978, but newer ones were whiter AFAIK.
My truck is 033 with FD41 trim, it is an LX so that may be a little different. The LX's here also came with chrome wheels.What is the trim code on it baas? My 1980 is 033 with P11 trim. Just wondering what color that should be. I like the whiter white myself.
Dude...you have issues...First of all I would like to point out that I never said that 045 was correct, however I did say that the color on newer cruisers was whiter than Cygnus white.
But I can see that there is some confusion on the codes and names, so here's what cruiserfaq states:
012 Cygnus White, cap and bezel, '71 - '80
033 White, cap and bezel, '80 - '84
045 White, Whole car, '89
TLC FAQ - 13.0 Body Colour Codes
Here's another link:
However the above does not specificly state the roof and bezel code, but states that Cygnus white 012 was not used after 1975.
And yet another:
This does have a reference to roof and bezel, but states that roof and bezel on all years are Cygnus white, T-12...
So the only really clear information gathered is that besides my wife's being wrong, and mine going to just as wrong, just to match and make the rest look wrong, there's no clear information on the correct code for newer cruisers.
Which is just wrong!
Btw, I did contact Toyota on this, but they lost all archives a few years ago in a fire.
