looks good, quite the Icon forgery, I like it!I tried to copy the dark grey as close as possible here are the paint codes for my colour:-
Paint manufacturer - Spies Hecker
Base coat - Technical grey - 177, 656R, 86R (803817)
Clear coat - Matt Clear Coat - 8085
I'm sure he is not worried about competition but probably doesn't want a bunch of want-a-bees running around out there in the same color.I'm sure Jonathan would tell you if you asked him. I don't think he's afraid that you'd be competition for him.
I'm willing to bet the paint is the only thing that's the same as a real ICON.
Good change he wouldn't know since he just buys and sells these things. Has been know in the past to have a the newer owner paid to have it shipped from the PO location and never see it in person himself. I know he has been importing the last few years those I believe he ships to his place in AZ. Those he does some things to but don't believe any are frame off restorations.It's probably Rustoleum rattle-can primer.
