    Hey,

    Another long shot, but if anyone would know, it would be someone from this outfit-

    Does anyone know if the Maroon Dick used on his early kustoms, the maroon, was a factory pack, or something he mix up , special?

    Thanx,

    He was telling the Story at the GNRS Hall of Fame Lunch about building the roof section on the Ohanesian Merc and I think I remember him saying that it was a bitch to match the paint as Westergard had sprayed it previously....not sure though as I was a bit overwhelmed to even be in the same room as alot of my heroes....

    I had a conversation with Rikster about the paint I was looking for on the Betancourt Merc..Rik said it was a 1948 Chevy Oxford Maroon with gold powder mixed in...I hope this helps..i will include the thread link where i think it was mentioned...

    here:) is where you'll find the color, and maybe the car :eek:

    search here for coverage of the 2010 LA Roadster show, and somewhere in all those threads you will find Pat Swanson's 12 port Chev powered 32 5 window. That will be as close as you can get to a color sample.

    Hey David,
    Both Ford, on their trucks, and Jaguar on their XJ Sedans in the 70s & 80s had a deep Maroon colour. You could go a two stage route & add a slight amount of pearl to your base clear. A heavy pearl on a kustom will give it that sad & sorry dreded plastic "street rod'' look!
