Decided early on in the project that I wanted single stage paint. I like the look and the ability to wet sand the surface to a look that I feel makes the car look great. Original color of 6406 Irish Green sounds simple, but the small variations in the paint mix really show in the final color. Too much yellow or black really changes the appearance.
Got a spray out card from Willhoit Auto Restoration that seems to match the existing car color very well.
Could not find a formula for single stage PPG for 6406, so supplier is now tasked with making a match.
Spray out card shown below. I am very sure the photo of the color will vary greatly on your computer screen from what the car will actually look like. In person, in various lighting, it seems to match original color to my eye.
