Hi Everyone, I'm a new member (been lurking for a few months). Took delivery of an 1989 MR2 T-roof yesterday, looking forward to keeping it running and making some small-ish improvements. I'm in central PA.
It was indeed repainted by the previous owner in its original color... I looked up the name of the color online (on some third-party site), so must have gotten the wrong color name. Looks like I'll need to paint the eyebrows (maybe these should really be called eyelashes, since they're below the headlights... but I'll stick with tradition!). Decals etc. were a little lower on my priority list, but I see that TwosRUs sells them for a reasonable price, so I might move them up (we'll see what my soon-to-be-16yo son says about what we should do first). New wheels and tires are high up on the list... and some of the door and T-top gaskets are starting to show some cracking.Assuming it was repainted in the original shade, Toyota calls this color "Ice Blue Pearl". I owned an 89SC in this color. As an 89-only color it's quite rare on MK1s.
The clear plastic side moldings, pin-striping and other decals were not replaced when your car was repainted. Also, the plastic "eyebrows" in front of the headlights are normally body color.
