    I just bought a TV Yellow Jr, how good did I do? I didn’t know they made any TVs in that body.

    Wow!
    I didn't even know they could "yellow" that much.

    I felt a little weak when I saw it.
    Emotions, you know.
    :shock:

    Congrats on yours!

    I will do that, but in the cavity pic, you can see the white undercoat. It's definitely TV Yellow

    Looks good, faded but good. I have seen several over the years and yes they are a rare custom color for the SG Junior.
