duplicate layers or other method

I am working on a drawing for our production floor.  The assembly consists of some deck assemblies which are constructed first and then a sub-frame assembly is constructed on top of the decks.  The first couple sheets in the drawing show just the decks with the sub frame assembly suppressed so no problems there.  On the sheets that show the sub-frame assembly I want to show the decks for reference but have the lines underintensified or grayed out so that it is clear what is being dimensioned or referenced. 


What is the best method to do this.  I have played around with layers and created a Grayed Out layer with the line color set to a light gray.  I then moved the deck assemblies onto the layer and the sub-frame sheets look just like I want them to.  The only problem is that the layer appears to be universal so that the deck assemblies are gray on all of the sheets.  See the attached file


Is there a better way to get this same effect?  Any help would be appreciated.
