Re: 1987 540R Finish thickness
Yeah, but this RB wasn't happy with life anymore. The redbursts always look too fat for my tastes. Too thick and chubby. The BBs are just as fat and chubby but I guess the blue makes a trick of the eye and I don't mind it unless it is really thick. I'm spoiled by the '88 body shape. Smooth and sleek and sexy, that. That's one reason I took this RB down. When it is painted it will be more sleek than with the original finish.
I got the blueburst in the photos last week. Excellent condition. So I figured that I'd give up on the refin, sell the stripped body, and just keep the BB. It has great lines, but is still too thick for me although I've tried to make myself like it. Except for how good it looks, we just don't bond. So I'm back to the refin plan and the BB will go away.
There's an RB on ebay right now if anyone's looking. It's stupid expensive.
