It only matters if it is something that matters to you. Which is to say it
is just a personal idiosyncrasy. Certainly nothing to get worked up over or
pay an outrageous amount of money for one way or the other. Some of us are
a little....tilted this way. Personally I have done both. I have a 62
Triumph TR 3B that was originally Signal Red. When I purchased it as a resto
project the other person was in the process of painting it British Racing
(Which I am also very fond of) However this particular car still has the
original window sticker, etc., and it just seemed wrong to change it so I have
restored it by stripping the BRG off, which thankfully was only partially done
that poorly and going with the original color. I have another 62 TR 3B that
essentially has no heritage so I painted it what I wanted. Had to go through 4
different layers and colors to get back to metal but there it is. Hope that
makes sense but if not....Oh well....What can be said for a fellow that owns
several Triumphs, Austin-Healeys and MG's? He's nuts of course!!!
Cheers to all & Motor On!!
