thanks, just finished installing the door glass this weekend for the RU, kinda proud to say a fully functional door glassed hardtop, no lexan for me.
Yes, the paint is the same in both pics. It is probably over 30 yrs old enamel. It is supposed to be "Washington Blue", an original 36 Ford color, and it is fairly close. I had to repaint my firewall and had it color matched... I could probably dig up the color codes if you wanted it to match exactly.
A little OT, but here's a winter quickie....

I'm really impressed by the vehicles that were resurrected from the Dead... takes a lot of vision, a boat load of talent and patience to pull those off!
It was an enjoyable 3 yrs.
