The paint went on thick, but oh well. Its Krylon Pistachio.  Just box stock with a set of plug wires and BMF. Enjoy!

Cool Merc.  I really dig the color.  I plan on using the same color on one of my projects.

I love the color, beautiful job.  Nice contrast with the interior and white steering wheel. The perfect Merc.

Thanks guys! I do love the color also. If i had one in real life, this is the color it would be! And yes its Krylon spray paint. Satin infact, with a rustoleum clear.

Nice looking build! LOVE the color. Krylon is horrible, (I did my Willys Gasser in this color) but you sure made it look perfect.

Sharp! That color totally suits it. If you're in the mood to experiment next time, try the satin variety of Krylon paint, if there is one in your chosen color. Then just add some clear coats. I've had good luck with that.

Beautiful Merc!

Must echo everyone else's thoughts, digging on that paint job. Great rattle can work.

Great looking Merc! The color is just right, and very well done. Krylon works on models if you're careful. The clear really helps. You did a great job on this Merc!

Thanks, i was thinking i made a mistake with this paint at first, but some how it turned out!

It is Krylon Satin.
