Ever since i've started this project i've wanted to copy the colour of the one on the left here, which i built in 1981.
Trawling round the car shops didn't turn up the right colour.
But, looking at reference pics, that's not an accurate colour.
What i've done on the new one on the right is.
But i prefer the left.
So, what do i do? Be accurate or go for personal choice. In the end decided to go with accuracy, no matter how much it rankles.
For the record, the colour on the new one isn't out of a can but a build up of paints, which were:
Ford Polar Grey,
dusting of Skull White
