Yep probably so just curious , you don’t see a lot of these cars around, it’s very cool to hear of someone else that has one. How are you coming on yours? Post some pictures we love pictures. :beep:

I used the formula. I think it matched up pretty good. That's cool you got yours from the original owner! Was he a Big Petty fan?

I couldn't get the paint nor the formula from Petty motorsports at the time I was painting the car but they did offer to paint it for me for a healthy penny. The guy that worked for Richard in the body shop asked me to send some pictures of the car so he could check it out and noticed how nice the underside of the deck lid looked and asked if that was the original paint, which it was, he told me off the record that if it was cleaned up with compound and wax I should be able to do the 3D imagery match, long story short it matched perfect.
