Hi everyone,

I have recently bought a 1969 super 12 and I want to do a rattle can repaint. Can anyone point me in the direction of a pretty close match on the light blue and the white? I plan to do a good sanding and a tape up but did not want to a complete tear down with a sand blasting. Thanks in advance!

3 to choose from that are real close.

 

AMC AMX blue  http://www.cardomain...3/1969-amc-amx/

Pontiac blue   http://www.amerikaan...pic.php?t=75435

Verd green hammered finish, <----this one requires very light coats to not be a hammered finish, not my favorite ...I don't like thin coats.

I literally used my paint chip books and tore out chips that looked close and laid them on the old fresh paint under the rubber on my floor boards, until I found an exact match. When I found a match it was 1975 AMC medium blue poly. Code G9. Im doing it right now. This is a 72 15., I used axalta paint but the code is the same for any brand
