LMBO, true there...…. I thought about black with gold livery of some sort but I don't have any gold decals....

Bright blue maybe???

Have enough green cars and trucks

Yellow of some sort....???

Neon Orange??? Meh!

Hi Kerry!

May-I suggest a cognac candy hue? Take Tamya's Titanium silver, and dust a light coat of Tamya's clear orange on it. This is what you will end-up with. But then, just my two cents...

Hi Kerry!

Yes, it is. It was the subject of a post on this very forum about a year ago. I guess you could find it with the search bar, under: 75 Duster scratchbuilt Pro-Mod, or something similar. Here are just three more pics. Enjoy. 

And to the precise colour combo, I will go back to my notes, to be absolutely certain about the Tamya's colour numbers, and get back to you on this thread ASAP.

Hi Kerry!

Turns out it was a good thing that i went back to my notes... I was OK about the light (one coat) overcoat of Tamya's transparent orange (TS-73), BUT... the base colour is indeed Tamya's TS-84, i.e. GOLD, not titanium gold. 

So: white primer, TS-84 base, one coat TS-73 candy + clear (in my case: Testor's Wet Look Clear). 

Voilà!

Unless I missed it, I didn't see what the front tires are- I am guessing the old Monogram solid rubbers turned down.

Well the door won!! Fixing the lower hinge on body side and snapped the upper hinge on the door side and to fix that I’d have to cut into the door to fix and not going there. So! Drivers door is now glued shut! It’s either that or it’s going in a box to be forgotten and I don’t want to do that...
