Looking good!
Not an OEM Type 3 color, but wasn't there a similar color for Type 4 cars?

We were shooting for this:

Our paint guy found a European Ford color which we doctored to reduce the size of the flakes. I'll see if I can find the name.

Since it's a custom mix it has no name. But I have the paint code in case I need more.

I was thinking that it looked a lot like my Notch in color. Mine's a BMW color though. Wink A slightly darker blue.
Looks damn good though. Cool

I def like your notch. I'm red/green color-blind so I probably see it a little different than you do.
