we still need a 100% color match don’t we Juan?? You have one inner fender closing panel that’s right, right?
Car is in booth… and will be dusted off today!!! Going to look sooo clean…. 😎 Parts are up next!!!! 😎Juan 59 DDWTParticipantSeptember 13, 2018 at 12:59 pmPost count: 297
Yes John, we still need a sample that matches Trout Blue 100%. With respect to the inner fender, I left it with you guys with the car, maybe Franz remembers.
I need help from the KCW community: We’re looking for a good sample of TROUT BLUE (L330). Does anyone have something that’ll help? I’d really appreciate a sample I can buy or loan, a chip or a liquid sample… Thanks everyone!WoodyParticipantSeptember 13, 2018 at 5:41 pmPost count: 22tlambertParticipantSeptember 13, 2018 at 9:03 pmPost count: 307JbParticipantSeptember 13, 2018 at 11:03 pmPost count: 623

a few more pics… any specs you might see are tiny spots of rubberized undercoating that will come off when I got over it before paint. 😎
Nice Ghia… 😎
