Car left factory all blues. Been various colours that I'm aware of. When previous owner bought it, car was a nasty beige/sand colour. He had it sprayed a Mercedes shade of BRGreen over OEW. Car was pretty poor and he did a lot of work on it, most of it pretty rough. But he preserved it.
I've gone for Colorado Red over OEW with Colorado Red hard top. Sometimes think it looks like a giant coke can.
I think I've gone as far as I want with changes that I've made. The 3:54 diff and the 28% overdrive are, in my opinion, my best choice. The 3 big Webers were probably my worst choice. With the 3:54 and the 28%, by the time the Webers came on tune, I was practically doing the ton. They worked well and would idle nicely, but they were just too much. The moderately lightened flywheel is good likewise but one forgets about it as soon as one becomes accustomed. I think the trick there is not to have too much weight taken off.
