    Well actually in the late 90 the REX blue changed slightly to Boatswan Blue on the Volvos slightly darker.
    And yea I painted a bunch of them.

  3. If a colour identifies as George Washington Gasser Blue, it is. Even if it's green.

    The paint store can't give you a color that hasn't been made, now Washington blue they should be able to help you with, as it is a popular Ford paint color!

    The store I use cannot/will not give you a color off of a 91 f 150 truck. They hand you a color chart and say find it. I'm ready for a store change.
    Thanks all for the pics and gracious comments.:)

    Yes you defiantly (;):D:D:D) or rather definitely need a new paint supplier, one who’s not so lazy and useless.

    Underneath the rust, primer and equipment orange paint on my ‘29 roadster I found this… is this Washington Blue?

    George Washington blue is a little lighter color than Washington blue. :oops:
     
  18. Not sure why the can says Dark Blue, the first can I had with the same mix was Washington Blue
    It gets bright in the sun and darker in the shade.
