Thanks! Believe it or not, the paint is actually a Mitsubishi color - Ultra Red Pearl. It came on a couple of their vehicles in the mid-2000s. It is a color that Ron at the paint shop had taken notice of one time and kind of "filed it away" for a day when a customer comes around asking about a deep red color. It really jumped out at me because it has a depth to it that makes you think it could be a three-stage paint, but it is only two stage (base/clear). The paint also has great flop - depending on angle and light, it transitions from a dark deep cranberry to something close to a candy apple. We took the stock mix and roughly doubled the amount of gold metallic in the formula to really make it pop in the sun. So, technically a "custom" mix, but with a defined starting point.

Thanks. We've named her the ugly duckling, but will be a swan when complete. Our target is a fun daily driver, but she'll look good.

Re: How about some pics of 47-59

New to the forum. Here's Clarke, (named after my late uncle) 53 (5) window I acquired just over a year ago. So far I have dropped the axle and installed posie's lowering springs along with some other suspension bits. New wheels and rubber all the way around. Still has the stock motor and drive line. He will be a work in progress for some time to come. Not sure what direction I want to go with it yet.

Thanks, it's a good 20 footer. I'll try to get some interior shots but it's got a ways to go.

love the brown patina. I'd apply a hefty amount of clear coat post-sanding. Good looking "swan" though!!
