    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!

    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… 😎
