I picked this one up last week and thought it would look good in my Buick collection. I painted this Dupli-Color Caymen Green with matching interior. The body was top coated with Testors Wet Look Clear and polished out with Maguires new car glaze #5.

Hope you like it.

Al

"Cayman Green" sure looks like blue to me!  :blink:

It's sort of a teal/aqua type deal. One of those colors that depends on the lighting a bit. Some lighting a little more green, others a little more blue. It's actually a '90's Ford color, but it lends itself well to many a "close match" for various old car shades. On Al's Buick, it's actually pulling off '66 GM Shadow Turquoise very well. Sorry guys, here I go rambling on about colors again. I think I ate too many crayons as a kid  :huh:

Very clean and attractive build. Good color for this car, with just the right gloss to represent a stocker.
