Very nice, congrats! However, I’ve also had a real problem with what “Dirty Lemon” really is, I’ve seen so many variations. Nonetheless, very nice what ever color it is.

As example I’m soon to be in possession of this amazing 2013 Historic Makeover “59” Brazilian, it is “Dirty Lemon”! This is why I get a little confused, it’s a totally different color than the OP’s.

That’s dirty lemon

Most of the red gone

The hint of blue in the paint mix now comes through and mixes with the ambering top coat giving it a greenish brown tinge

Beauty too!!!

Thanks, can’t wait to get her! Very difficult to find a lefty Historic Makeover and the Brazilian Board makes it even more difficult.

Here’s where it gets a little confusing. This is another one of my “59’s” and it‘s
”IceTea”. Not a lot of difference. The “Dirty Lemon” may have a little more brown and this one is just SLIGHTLY more red. I give up, they all look good to me.
