He honastly expected that 30K paintjob for less than 5K and made sure that I knew he was not happy. Now I did cut and buff that car, but not the way I usually do it that is for sure just because I could not spend the time needed to do a "super" buff. So what I can see in those pics that car looks damn good for what was spent to do it, so see what this guy can do on a big buck job that is when you should be able to see what he can really do.
or a car that's black. We got faith.

By the way that 47 hudson looks real nice and I am sure that is not an easy car to do, pat your self on the back for that one!!!!

Noticed that but thought it was the lighting. Thanks anyway!

69 widetrack Wouldn't be a bit surprised, it is greener in the chip book, and your right bud, that is not a color of choice for me but it does kinds fit the car and the era.

Thanks for the, "rings a bell" confirmation...we are getting closer.

tech69 I think it's the sunfire. That name rings a bell.
12-21-2012 06:47 PM
69 widetrack For 1972 a new color, Dodge paint code Y2, PPG mixing # 81574 Color Name, Sunfire Yellow. It's even greener and lighter than the Y1 code. Tech 69, if you could take pictures outside in the sun, that would help a lot for color, always hard to match a color to a chip, even harder over the internet and faded chips. LOL

Thanks

69 widetrack Then in all probability it is the Y1 paint code, when I get a minute I'll check my 72, & 73 chips to see if there's any change up.

Thanks

tech69 yeah, original color. Powered hood scoop chrome bumpers but were painted, striping up top.
12-21-2012 06:17 PM
69 widetrack My 42 year old chip books leave a little to be desired as well, it's amazing that the chips actually are starting to look faded. Recently I looked at a red from 1930 for a customer of mine and when I showed him the chip, he said no that wasn't it, when I mixed a little for him he said it was bang on, maybe ask the painter, I'll bet he knows the paint code.

The body style is 71 and up, hard to tell the exact year without it put together and then did the guy who owns it go with the original color?

Maybe Tech 69 can correct me but this is the best information I have.

To me it looks a little darker than the Corvette Yellow of that era and does have a Yellow toner or 2 that go to the green side.

I still love all those 60's, 70's era monochromatic colors...they are different and would stand today like they did back then.

Hope this helps.

not even sure if it's a 71 but it does have a green hue to it. I'd take Vette yellow over it anyday, but that's just my opinion. I'll take some pics when it gets the stickers and the sky clears up.

10g's for that.
admitting what? Looks like you never worked in a shop before. In a garage full of pride with no work? Sounds about right. Sure if it were my car there's some things I would do different(like strip it) but I have to make do with what the job entails.

Do you have any pictures of the car in daylight? Thanks!
