Just got back from a local auto paint shop...no luck. It appears to be a defunct DuPont number that is not in their system. I will try going direct to DuPont and see what I can find out there. Whatever I wind up with, I want it to be something I can get some touch-up mixed down the road.

This '36 Caddy color (Colonial Cream) and one I saw on Tom Mix's restored coffin-nosed Cord are my fav's so far but are naturally hard to track down.

Damn all this candy, metallic crap!!!

the cream will look good with her curves...I hate the old curvy bodies when they go metallics and candy....those colors are for late 50's and 60's straight panel cars

Thanks Jack but that is where I got the number that no one can find. So far, anyway. Just sent a note to Axalta Coating Systems (formerly DuPont Performance Coatings...they just sold their auto paint division). Maybe they can come up with a new number or at least the correct mix formula. We'll see.

Finally picked up my replacement body panels today. Been way too wet & cold for the outdoor sandblasting shop to work the past month or so. Will start hanging (welding) them shortly.

ONWARD!

Tango you have a very cool build ...love the old rides.
I have a brother that builds muscle cars for the wealthy...way outta my league!
One of the builds he has worked on was a '56 F-100 .....56hauler.com if you get a chance.... out of your busy schedule.

Mighty sweet Redd! --- The '56 is my favorite Ford PU of all time and that one is amazing. Just wish I had a fraction of the budget that rascal was built on. I wouldn't mind having a fraction of the skills required as well.

Your Bro did good! Thanks for sharing.
