    Looks very nice. Great color choice.

    Is that an original color? ...too dark for cirrus blue....maybe royal blue?

    Thanks!

    The original color is like a grey-blue. It was already a similar type blue. I went with this color because it pops but not too much.

    Great looking! How much of the trim did you have to take off or leave on? There are apparently some pieces that you can't really reuse due to it being deformed when you try to remove it, such as the gutter trims and possibly the glass surrounds.

    My paint guy disassembled a lot of the outer parts. He left most of the trim on but taped it up really good. Replacement parts are scarce so I was nervous at first but I just let him do his thing.
