Changing the Bertone from black on white (originally black on silver) to Avalon Blue was a big project!  Removing the vinyl top revealed lots of rust damage.  We also found rust in the windshield channel and of course removing the windshield resulted in a broken glass.  Not an easy part to replace after 30 years.  The results were worth the trouble though.  It's a looker!
