    Red and White (Removed a Black Wrap that was there when I bought it)
  • Was in the Netflix series "the sinner" in season one where they wrapped it in a black. I recently removed the wrap to show it's original red and white color way. That's why you'll see it switch colors during the build pretty quickly. Took about 2 hours to remove the wrap and was surprised to see the paint held up nicely.
