Heres a look at the Emerald green I have selected. Very close to the correct "G" code Emeral green on the 61 Plymouth color chart. 1 gal paint, 1 gal reducer, 1 gal show clear...... $460.00.
Will be delivered tonight and should be able to spray, (body), tomorrow

Body was painted Arctic white and then express clear coated, then a 600 wet sanding.
Next, the Emerald green and finally a heavy show clear. Body was double taped. first the Emerald was sprayed, then after removing the second level of tape & paper the rest was clear coated.
Three long days of prep to get to this point.

Considering it was a cloudy, damp, cool morning, and the car was painted outside, under a canopy, on a gravel pad and there was zero wind. It turned out to be perfect conditions and not one flaw appeared in the finish. :thumbsup:

Needs to dry and cure now. I'm taking a couple of days off.

Way-ta-go, Wil! Absolutely stunning! Now. . . Where is that fire-breathing Poly? :poke:

I regret that Bob is not here to see the completion of Virgil. He was one of this builds most avid followers. Always had great comments and enthusiastic questions. You'll be riding on the Maden voyage with Ellie Bob.

Question. Is that same color green that you used on interior parts?
Kick panels,dash frame,colum?

No Ken. All the greens on this car are different shades but harmonize beautify. My hats off to the designers of these cars.
I stayed as true as I could to the original shades of color. I have the codes and formulas if anyone needs them.

Will you make it to the TN Valley Mopar show with the '61 convertible in 2023? I hope to have our '61s parked side by side and take some photos
