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

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
Ray

I think it's the sunfire. That name rings a bell.

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.

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

Looks a lot like sublime green to me from the pics. It may be a shade lighter or darker in person than it is showing in the photos. Mopar used to use a lot of the same colors and just named them different for dodge and plymouth, such as panther pink is the same as moulin rouge. FY1 was called lemon twist or top banana which is probably that particular color. Considering that the paint job was only a 10K job I am quite sure that the painter did the best he could do on that car. I really don't know how your shop operates as far as the pay goes and how much time that your allowed to spent on a certain job versus how much money you will make. I do know for me I am sure not going to spend the same amount of hours cutting and buffing a 10K job versus a 30K job, after all why should the guy who is spending less get the same as the guy paying what it is really worth? And I know your shop turns out top notch work for what I have seen here, so I am sure you understand what I am saying. I get myself in some bad situations for this exact reason. The GTX I had posted a while back that I tried to help a friend out with doing him a favor more than myself. 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. 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!!!!
