    Greetings all - I posted a paint question or two awhile back -- I finally got what little body work I needed/planned to do completed - sprayed new yellow paint -- got all the stuff I'd taken off put back on (I'm still waiting for a pair of Ford mirrors - and haven't done the emblems yet) For the color -I went to a paint store picked a chysler/dodge color - I've since got a pic next to a Dodge Ram truck I think is the same color. I'm pretty pleased with the out come - there are a few runs, drips and errors - I could/might color sand and buff these out or I might just drive it like it is /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif.

    It sure gets allot of more attention - from thumbs up's to nice truck's -- gotta love driving a topless first gen.

    Here's a URL to my Yahoo pic page:

    I don't know for sure how to post pics here.

    ccox7 -- I got the paint from a local auto parts store here in Round Rock, Texas - for years it was called Rick's Auto Parts and carried paint/supplies -- it is now a Car Quest. Paint is a Dupont Product - Nason Ful-cryl II acrylic enamel. Label states: Car: Chrysler - Code: PY3 -Year: 1998 - color: yellow clearcoat. The girl who mixed it told me to bring back the can (for additional paint) as she changed the formula just a bit. The exact mix is on a label on the can. I just mixed it with a hardner, thinned it and sprayed it on - no clear coat. I'm going to get a new tailgate and if I can swing the big bucks a firberglass cowl hood - so I'll be painting those to match. I bought a HVLP gun from someone here on the forum -- should be here anytime - so I'm going to practice with it and use it on the tailgate and hood.

    TONYP - get that yellow puppy on the road. You might be surprised the attention it gets. I always had the occasional guy ask if it was for sale or give me a thumbs up at stop lights - now people are yelling across parking lots!

    sweet! I knew you could do it! I haven't color sanded or buffed the beater either, because it looks so much better with just the color coat. Great job!
