trying to decide what color to paint my 87 wing and leaming toward the or oramge in the 2003 or 4 model but color charts seem to show they are slightly different

is it possible anybody can send me some pics of these models fullscale so i can compare them in real life?

this will give me a basis to start with

You really need to see the 2 orange colours in daylight as photographs do not tell the true story. The 2002 Orange is a pearl finish whereas the 2003 colour is a candy metallic finish slightly darker, which is probably the best. I had the 02 pearl orange and while it was nice on a really sunny day the candy orange looked good all the time. Attached link is mylast bike in Pearl orange

yr236m is the code for the 03 Candy jupiter orange and yr232p is the code for my Pearl orange bike.

Hopethis helps.

The orange on my 1800 is from the 2003 /2004 wing and it is called Jupiter Orange ,It is a really nice colour and sparkles in the sunlight from the metallic in it .The pearl orange or burnt orange as it is known is from the 2002 wing and is darker and flatter than the jupiter orange ,, Hope this helps ,Ciaran

Her's a pic of my 2002 1800, I believe it's known as "Burnt Orange"

This colour is VERY popular among Goldwing cogniscenti of a particular region...:dude:
