Can't wait to see it under way Jonathan, I too just got the gt350 for a donor for my coupe on evilbay tonight. Got all my body work done on the coupe conversion, and is in filler primer. Now introducing the 1967 Mustang Eleanor coupe haha. With no block sanding yet, the conversion is almost undetectable.

I think you and me were bidding on the same one then, did you pay $12.50 + 6.99 s/h. I like what you are doing with this one , it really looks good, I cant wait to see it finished.

The only problem I am going to have is I dont have an airbrush, so doing the eleanor colors is going to be a problem

Haha, nope I paid 19.95 and free shipping, that would have been pretty funny though. And yeah, I may have to take youre advice and go to harbor freight and try out a cheap airbrush on some bodies that are no good, then attempt a good paint job with the correct color to put on the eleanor coupe.

Jonathan- the closest color I've found in a spray can is model masters Plymouth bright platinum metallic, although it is way to bright compared to the actual pepper gray of the Eleanor. I have only looked at the lhs, not online yet.
And thanks for the comments Greg, couldnt do it without you're awesome mustang body.

The almost wifey? Haha that's funny, anyway of you get it, do share how well it works. The only other thought I had, was to contact the local auto paint supply shop, and see if they would put custom colors in an aerosol can. I know my work does this for they're company color, so I'm gonna see Monday morning, I'll share how it goes.

Dupli-Color has the Mineral Grey Metallic and Pepper Grey in their line-up now. I have the Mineral Grey here, as I was going to originally shoot a real Mustang that color (so I picked up the spray Can for model purposes.

Glad to see you back Brad.

I've started a couple of 1966 Mustang builds, but had to put them on hold until the weather warms up and I can paint them outside.

Meanwhile I've been working on a couple of diaramas which I've posted in the dio section of the forum........ But those 'tangs are crying out for me to get back to them!

I was at the parts store yesterday picking up primer, and I was looking at the duplicolor paints, and i did see a lot of colors that close to it, it may be a specail order paint thru the parts store . But this was before I knew that duplicolor made the paint, so I am going to go back and see.

I will get you the Dupli-Color paint codes and names in the morning. I have to stop at Autozone when I get out of work to pick up the heater core for my truck, and will get them then.


Tony, work and various other engagements have kept me from here as of late, and I see it being just as tumultuous the next couple of months. Work is getting interesting as our aircraft are getting older.

Bradley, thanks bud, the only reason why I am asking is we dont have the smartest of people working in the parts store that close to me, so if I can just give the paint codes, I am sure that will make it easier for them.

Steve, you have missed a lot of great builds, dont you hear that nosie, its the fourm and your builds calling your name :lol:

My apologies, as Dupli-Color does not have 'Pepper Gray Metallic' in their line-up. However, they do have paint code CX (Dupli-Color spray #BMF0360) Dark Shadow Gray Metallic (from which 'Pepper Gray' is derived). They also have a slightly lighter shade TK (BMF0352) Mineral Gray Metallic.

My suggestion (as Dark Shadow Gray Metallic and 'Pepper Gray Metallic' are VERY close) would be to shoot the DSGM as a base coat, and tint your first layer of clear with just enough Black to give it a hint of Black. That will get you the closest of any store-bought shelf-ready colors. If you want it exact, I would go to a paint supply house (that deals in auto paint) with the factory paint code (Dupont Fleet 44490) and have them mix you up about a half pint.
