    well i was digging through my paints ,my secret stash .can't figure out when i bought it but i found 3 gallons of Centari Candy apple red that have never been opened. i was planning on Wimbledon White and guards man blue. i have plenty of blue but the white i have would be very close . it looks like i will go ahead and paint it Candy apple red and white stripes .the whether is turning bad fast so i may have to wait until spring .i had a 65 that was Candy apple red and it showed very well .17 first place trophies and one second place, that i lost to my black 66 GT coupe. i guess you cant get two first place trophies in the same show:rlaugh:. my 65 had Shelbys crew chief Garry fooled .he asked me if it was a real Shelby? i told him it was a replica .he said nice job i thought it was the real thing .the next day i was told by Steve Davis that the man him self saw the car when i wasn't there and said it was one of the finest replicas he had seen ,talk about a spirit lift . i think i will try to replicate it and hope it turns out like the first one.

    I've read through this thread before, but I keep running through it just for the pictures; very inspiring. What kind of primer do you use and where do you get it?

    I think it is called Colar but i would have to check . It is from Dupont . It is very hard to sand but bonds to bare steel very well .Once you scuff off the top it sands easily and feathers out great. They change the primers and paints so often here in Cali i never get to use the same thing twice .
