350 Grill Emblem Color

74 C10, wanting to find out if anyone knows the actual color (Goldish) inside the numbers of the "350" grill emblem.

Re: 350 Grill Emblem Color

I repainted my 1975 454 emblem with an orange brown mixture made up of about 50:50 of Testors flat yellow and flat brown. Somebody else reported this on this forum and a little searching will give you the paint number codes. Its a reasonable match and I sprayed mine with an air brush after careful taping. I think this would be a close match for yours - I know the call out is a little different. Good luck

Go to Squarebodysyndicate.com and you can find the colour under the "SB Formula" heading.

Emblem Paint

Here's a tip that works for me when restoring the emblems on these trucks: Its was always been a challenge to match the faded matte mustard colored paint and make it look authentic. I found two methods that work well, one is going to a hobby shop and getting Testors Matte FI. Yellow #1169-RM11691_0611 and Testors Matte FI. Brown #1166-RM11661_0611. Mix these two colors evenly to a 1 to 1 ratio and you should have a great touch up for those 77 trim pieces etc. You can also thin it out and spray it from an airbrush.

If you don't have an airbrush, Kimball Midwest New Equipment Yellow #80-832 matches just as well but has a sheen, this works better if you are looking to restore to new. Kimball Midwest (800) 233-1294.
