Very nice! White is right, but blue rules. Your interior is just like mine except for the console.

turtleman, I've always been really anal about getting my headlights clean.
Ha my best friend always gives me crap for it.
After cleaning them the best i could with a headlight cleaner kit,
i noticed the end of the cornering lamps that stick forward were still more yellow
than the rest of it, so i used rainX and a toothbrush to scrub at the inside of the plastic.
The toothbrush only fit inbetween one set of my headlights, so i used a Q tip for the other.
The RainX helps scrub some dirt and oxidation out

Good tips on the corner lights. I used blue magic headlight restore on the outside a few years ago on mine and it helped but I want to get them better. They look pretty scuzzy again.

Yeah i can tell mine are already starting to become more oxidized. I wonder if there is some sort of uv protectant product that we could apply to them.

I bought a kit today to clean my own up (Turtle Wax - $10), but realized when I got down to it that it was just rubbing compound, several grades of grit pads, and a final coating swipe. Basically a wet sand job. After doing one main lens, I opted for a faster way and used a semi damp rag with lacquer thinner to smooth out the years of bug and rock collisions and remove the oxidation more quickly (be careful to do this with prudence, not wet at all) that worked nicely. Then a bit of wet sanding, polish and the coating swipe. Even cleans up the side lens for a close match to the main. I'm guessing they are made from a lesser grade plastic. Anyway, they look good, not new, but real good.

Hey Greg,
I looked at your shots... nice!
Seems we have similar exterior/interior color schemes, so of course it's NICE:) Same wheels also.
My VIN research did bring back a different color name, though. This one is called Teal, not Jadestone, but perhaps they changed the name after '95. It certainly appears close from your shots, especially the leather. Lighting conditions can often play tricks.
I'll post a few shots when I get mine cleaned up a bit... for comparison.
Best of luck with it.

Sweet! Yeah i still have the window sticker from when my father bought it new and it says the exterior is Light Jadestone metallic and the interior is jadestone. I have researched that paint color and i found that light teal metallic came up with the same code. I believe you are right and they changed the name from jadestone to teal. The interior look blue, but you can notice a hint of green in it as well. There is also an interior color called adriatic blue that i have not seen yet. I'd be interested to see pictures of yours!
