Fiat used a similar color on the X1/9. Saw one painted with brown
spots with the lights popped up - frog is the correct description.

This is definately a Peter Max design! If your yellow is like mine
you made the right choice.

Are you sure those weren't brown rust spots?

Jeff,

Yeah that's it! Thanks a bunch for posting it, as I regretted not
taking a picture (of the picture) afterwards.

Hey, I drove my '77 X1/9 every day for 8 years without a day of
mechanical trouble or body rust. Of course, the floor boards, shock
towers and other structural areas were not so obliging.

Seems the Italians dipped the cars in salt water just before painting!

By the way, I bought a '78 X1/9 on E-bay two years ago and it has no
rust anywhere. It shares the garage with my '69 S4 and I drive it
when I want to fewel a larger car around me than the Elan.
