  • SVO paint scheme and trim, wing etc

    I am having my 86 1D painted and I will be having all the trim painted.
    I was wondering if the wing, trim, upper door frames, cowl cover etc would be the same color on an SVO

    Same color for all but different color for different years. Rear spoiler is "textured."

      I am going with a similar but different Dark Gray Metallic than my original 1D paint. I am gonna do the trim in a more semi-gloss black-ish color but have not decided yet. i have to see trim color vs the paint I pick but will be along those lines.

      I want the Gray to be DARK and am actually leaning towards Ford Dark Matter paint which is very dark but I need to see it in daylight first. Only car I seen is on showroom floor so not a good example to look at. Looks almost black in the shade.

      If I go different shade of Gray then it probably wont be a factory Ford color and will be another manufacturer. Trying to stay with a Ford color if I can

        When we got our car repainted, they used the appropriate color for the gray bits, but it didn't turn out in the semi-gloss finish it's supposed to be. Something was messed up with the mix, but I'm actually quite happy with the glossy finish.

        Around post #87 of my build project shows some of the finish, if you want to see what it looks like.
