Please forgive my - Stupid Question of the day

Really great looking 40!
In the posted pics the hardtop and doors look to be a much lighter shade of the body color? Is that the lighting in the pics or is that from those not seeing as much sun over the years? (like being in storage??)

Great question. I call it 10 shades of gra eige. I haven’t done any exterior paint / finish other than the top / roof and the sidesteps. Cygnus white on top and dune beige Toyota 416 on the sidesteps. Those sidesteps are new Toyota OEM that I bought from a dealership then painted. (I have the old originals in the stash for new owner). The sidestep 416 matches the doors and the sides of the top. So all other paint / finishes are PO applied.

The PO in AZ did awesome work iMHO. In the engine bay all dune beige 416 from my eye and his explanation. Painted 3+ yrs ago. Looks show quality to me. The side panels on the top and the doors are original paint from PO understanding and my experience with this rig over the past 3 yrs. I wouldn’t touch them personally. The hood has a very baked patina on it. I really like it and wouldn’t touch it. The rest of the lower halve…front fenders, below the doors, back fenders have patina but I’ve considered taking a diluted CLR mixture and Scotchbright pad to them to expose the original paint. Never got around to it.

My assumption is the the top and doors spent a majority of time in a garage / storage…Just an assumption. The ambi doors same assumption. Guessing a PO decades ago sprayed a cheap top coat to try and spruce up the bottom half and it aged much differently. A mystery and then the side stripes I really like but make it a bit more difficult to do a full body paint attempt. Long story…sorry wish I knew for sure
