Sleeping beauty can see again

Here are some before and after pics. I also used a scratch remover kit on her windshield that was terribly scratched, and I have to say, this stuff did the trick. Have a ways to go still, but I'm really liking the new clothes she's wearing. Enjoy!!!

those colors you repainted it, are they stock colors for that year Honda or is it your personal color choice. VERY nice combination, looks great so far, is the tank shelter painted the same colors?

I did check on the stock color for a 86 aspencade since I liked that color combo. The price was way ridiculous so I matched as close as I could. Wimbledon white and gold metallic are what I went with. The tank shelter has not been painted yet, but I'm going with the same color combo and identical pattern as well.

Now Sleeping Beauty is starting to look nice, like a 'Classy' Goldwing should. 8-)
