Has anyone matched an original Speedster Blue car?

We have a sample matched to original, but I want to get some various references for our library. I'm happy to pay for a spray out, or just a dab of paint.

Always striving for perfection;-)

Thanks,

John

I might be able to help. I have a car that is repainted speedster blue , and I bought a colour spray out card from you last year which does not match it. I got Bruce Cooper (speedwagen) to match it to one of his library colours , he mixed some Glasurit base paint for me. I am away in Japan right now but when I get back to UK will look up the mix formula. PS I think your card was labelled speedster blue/sky blue and maybe matches the later colour (sky)

I just finished painting my 1954 speedster blue. I did have your paint out card and it did not match a sample of the dash I had. We tried several paint suppliers but they could not come up with the right tone. I did get through to a specialist from Glasurit and they were able to come up with what we think is the correct color, the 602 code. I have several pictures you can see but they change under different lighting conditions. I also have the paint formula if you are interested. give me a call There were some problems but I can explain them to you
