While waiting for different things to come in on my '69 camaro build I was going to do a Jeff Gordon car for my son.I have looked everywhere for something close to the blue on the car and can't find squat! Anyone know of a color close to his metallic med/dark blue and where to purchase it?

Thanks in advance!

Model Car World carries a wide range of racing colors that are factory correct.

I cannot find an exact name for the blue the #24 uses, but it will be a DuPont hothues color.
If you are looking for 100% accuracy, any good paint shop should have a selection of hothues paint chips to choose from. Tamiya has some dark metallic blue paints that should be close.

Good luck.

I used Tamiya Mica Blue on mine - It worked pretty well.

True Blue is an almost exact match if you want the cheaper way out. Any parts store should have it. Also Testors makes one.
