Don-
Check out this link for a picture of my Ash Gold w/ white top car.  The picture is at the bottom of the page:

That picture was taken July 6, 1968.

Go for the white top!  I have a 68 Ash Gold L30/M20 with Ivy Gold deluxe interior and a white convertible top and it looks great.  It's a very nice color combo.  My father bought the car new back in 1968.

Now, finding Ivy Gold interior parts can be very frustrating.  I tried upholstery from everyone I could find, and none matched my original interior color.  Most vinyl was just too gold, while my original was gold with a touch of green.  However, the carpet from ACC was a perfect match.

After years of aggravation, I ended up changing my interior to black w/houndstooth inserts.  The covers came from CARS and are truly works of art.  I know the deluxe houndstooth wasn't available on convertibles, but it looks sooooooo good with the Ash Gold exterior.  I saved all of my original Ivy Gold parts just in case I want to ever change back.

Good luck with the project - it's a great looking car.

My car is at the paint shop.  The painter wants to edge the front fenders then install them and paint them on the car.  I think that it will be better to paint them off the car.  Any comments/suggestions?  I'm not a paint & body expert, and I don't want to make a request that will upset my body guy.
Also, if the fenders are painted off the car, should the inner fenderwells be bolted to the fenders prior to installing them?  I did a test install of the fenderwells first, then the fenders and it was a little tricky getting the fenders mounted.  I wonder how it was done at the factory.
I'm sure some of you have been through this installation many times and can offer some great tips.  Any guidance is greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Jeff
