that is fantastic - thanks so much for posting this
to add to the detail above, according to the BMH records, my '81 pickup was body colour Ermine with Black (Houndstooth) trim
I actually found 1 patch of Ermine White on your pick-up. It was under the l/h pedal box blanking plate on the front crossmember. Still clean and shiny too!
I can't remember if I told you that?
..did you leave it there for the sake of authenticity ? ...it's likely the only original bit on that car
It's still there. It escaped sand blasting as it was covered by the plate.
