My car just came out of the closet!!!!

Smokey is now refering to herself as Smokette.

I can't say it was a total supreise. I had my suspicions. When I removed the dash pad, I thought I saw some suspicious color application. But today I removed the rear valance and cut it to make room for the additional pipe. I once again saw something disturbing and used some engine degreaser to confirm my suspicions. Now, I fear my schwarz metallic baby is in fact ...


.... .... .... .... .... BABY BLUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh the humanity!!!

Could it be that just the rear valance was replaced with a used piece at one point? Isn't there a factory paint code sticker in the front trunk to confirm?

The same color paint can be seen behind the fresh air blower motor and when I took the dash pad off it was the same color.

I haven't seen a paint code sticker... but then again, I was looking near the door hinges. That's where it was on my '79.

Maybe this is a problem in MT, but not in most of the country.

You have probably found that your car was painted _Gulf_ Blue -- a proud racing color worn by Porsche's finest and some other cars that crushed Ferrari (Ford GT-40).

I have a great Gulf Blue car, but my project is going to be Gemini Blue.

Too many black cars anyway, they scratch easily, and show dirt....

The color listed for the car from the factory was metallic black. The options sticker is not on the car but you can find the information in the owners manual. Where these blue parts came from I will not hazard a guess.

You big PANSY!

Have you run the car with your new muffler yet? Was there much resonance?

Well, I'm only kidding... muffler is on and I love it... I'll be serving up a new thread in a minute!

I actually like blue. I just thought it was funny.

And I still find it hard to believe it has beeen re-repainted. There are too many spots where I'd expect to find some old paint, and I can't find any. Who knows... maybe this is some kind of undercoat...

It is probably an undercoat, but even if not, I would not say he is coming out of the closet......let's just say he is metrosexual; very well groomed.
