  2. I saw a new Ford truck today that was a non-matelic Washigton Blue or close shade. It looked good enough for me to consider using it on my '47 Ford coupe.

    I'll never get tired of looking at your RPU (I don't think anyone else on here will either). I've been following your intake manifold refinishing thread. I'm hoping that it turns out as well as the rest of the car. That is about the most aesthetically pleasing 3 deuce setup I've ever seen.

    Thanks, I’ll be updating as I go. I think it’s going to look even better for appearance, durability and function.

    There will be some news to share along the way with the carbs too as things come together
    related to the leaks and other fuel delivery issues.

    That's going to look great. Please post pics when done!
     
  26. That looks good! Modern equivalent of Washington Blue? Do you have the number?

    I've always loved Washington Blue. My FARGO is similar in an early '80s Chrysler/Dodge Nitghwatch Blue. But with the last four pics I can hardly believe the similarities with '72-73 TR6 Saphire Blue I just shot my TR6 in. Quite stunning. Now the only trouble I'm having is that my '32 5W will be blue as well as my '56 Meteor Rideau Victoria.

    I'm wondering if I should try another colour on my other projects! LOL
