Another Refreshed Royal

With any luck, my Quiet Deluxe will turn out as well as this red Custom II that I did recently. (I know that it will be as high-quality, but I doubt that I will have as much luck in matching the color. I personally think that the Quiet Deluxe was made to be a two-tone typewriter.)

For some strange reason, Royal never made a two-tone Quiet Deluxe. There were two-tone Aristocrats. Early  boxy Quiet Deluxes were two-tone, as well as the gold-plated models. Here's Ian Fleming's typewriter
