I've had this empty RCA 14PD80xx cabinet laying around for years/

Recently while I was at Ace Hardware I found a can of 1950's style "Coral" Krylon and knew I had to do something with it.

I have about three of these sets in a plain white cabinet and I think one of them is pretty scruffy so maybe I'll re-skin it with this. :D
It would be an easily reversible mod taking aobut 10 minutes to swap out cabinets.

The 1955 Chevy coral and grey two-tone combination was always one of my favorites. VERY '50's!!

You mean like this?

1956 Dodge.

When I was a kid, my brother had a Plymouth two tone in Santa Rosa coral and black much like this:

Seems to have been a fairly popular color combo in the mid 50s, looks good on the RCA!

That 56 Dodge is exactly the car I had in mind when I did this.
