      You can suggest colors....but I'm probably going to use one of the original 1962 Chevy II colors. If the blue looks ok when I paint the test panel, I'll probably go with it. If not, then the red, white, or cream colors are next in line

        white with the red oxide primer inside like you mentioned would really look cool...

          The '62 Chevrolet 'Silver Blue' or the darker one?

                I've always been a fan of the light to medium blue metallic range of colors - I don't think you can go wrong staying close to that original paint Jim.

                  The test painting with the Nassau blue didn't go too well....I got tiger stripes, pretty bad. I think I'll go with a solid color. Roman Red is top on my list. Although I'm kind of liking the Corona Cream they had, but one distinct advantage of the red is that the inside and outside are the same color. Makes painting it significantly easier than cream outside, fawn inside. Another advantage is that the red isn't too far off from the primer color that will be all over the inside and bottom of the car.

                  Been piddling with body filler. 2nd gallon can is getting pretty low. But it's not very thick anywhere, most of it ended up on the floor.

                    I think the Corona Cream color would look good and you don't really need two red cars do you?

                      I'm a big fan of "butter yellow" from the early 60s , at least I believe that's what Chevy called it . This machine is looking awesome , keep up the good work my friend .

                        are these the correct colors? That red is about your primer color... easier to cover. Those don't seem right for some reason. This was a '64 sheet, I'm "feeling" the yellow on this one.



                        sucks I can't read any of it. Wait - magic! Now I can.

                            I'm definitely thinking the Roman Red will look great!

                                That is how it is supposed to work. Not that you don't already know that. It looks like you are making great progress!
