I have yet to sit and finish that other project today (I won't be in bed until late though ),and I need to make some head-way on Nick's '70 BOSS (I sure wish Revell would do a '11 G and '12 BOSS 302 ,hint hint if they're watching),but I'll be jumping on the Bullitt soon,though I haven't broke the shrink wrap off it yet. I had been thinking rep-stock,but I got this cool resin cowl hood in from Lex's today...and I couldn't find any Highland Green Metallic,but I found a Duplicolor that I hope will be pretty close. Soon

Jonathan-Pics were worth the wait,it all looks smooth,esPECIALLY that slick spray job!

I agree the paint does look good, the pics hide a little of the flaws, its not smooth as glass now that it has dried more, but nothing a little wets sanding wont fix. I will see how well I get the clear coat to go on and maybe I can skip that step, I dont really like doing it, and I feel its only worth it for show/contest builds.
I took another pick of the wheels and tires, I stripped the chrome off before I really started doing research on the knight rider version and what seems to be it has chrome wheels , lucky for me I just happen to have a can of chrome spray from rustolem, its not perfect but close.
P.S. Olskool- you got six stangs waiting for you to start working on them, crack one of those babys open, you know you want to

But yeah,I'm waiting until that one's done,and I make at least a little headway on Nick's first (he's already giving me that pityful puppy-dog-eye'd look "Daddy,when are we going to build on mine?",LOL!). I should have finished that one up today,it has only a little bit left,but I've been nusing issues with the spinal injuries all day (ie: popped a prescirbed pill or two and relaxing\resting). I'll be gettig on it as early as this week at any rate,or as late as next.
Yeah,Highland Green Metallic was the standard colors on the Bullitts (on 01's they were also offered in black and blue),and Black was an option on the '08 models...I may just go that route this build,I really like a black Mustang (as looking at yours has me remembering ),though I'd have a bit of extra reseach as to what interior trim colors were on the black cars. I've seen one,but only one ('08. I've seen both green,black and blue 01's). Yeah,I likes the idea of a Black Bullitt,and I may use that resin hood on it too (where's that smilie that looks like one's in deep thought?) Hmmm...that sounds good to my ear,I think I will,and then I should be able to take that "not quite Highland Green" paint back and exchange it for Oxford White,which I'll need to replicate that '79 I owned back in the day

Stephen, the Dupli-Color paint number (for the 2001 Highland Green Metallic) is DUPNGFM372, and it comes in the .5oz bottles. It should make it easier for the counter guys to look it up and order it. The factory paint code for the 2001 Bullitt shade is PY, and that is what Dupli-color sells. Hope that helps.

I'll finish up that other build (or at least get it to 99.5% complete) today,then try and get some work done on Nick's '70,and maybe start prepping the Bullitt's body for primer,maybe spray some of that other green on a plastic spoon,see how close it really is. Thanks for the info,Bradley,much appreciated

Auto-zone can usually have it next-day if ordered before noon. If you aren't in a super-rush for it, go that route and be 'right color'. If not, use what you have!
I'll have to use what I have,they can only get it in non-rattlecans,I have no airbrush since the house fire back in June (not that I had used it much anyways,LOL!). I'll spray up a spoon later and post it
Here's a Bullit I did two years ago. I must confess I used MM British Racing Green, and added a dab of black. How does this compare with the actual factory color?
It looks pretty close to my eye. Here's a pic pulled from a book...
That's a GOOD looking build,BTW
