This is the GM light blue metallic compared to the Bermuda blue...

Let me know what you think...

 

Bummer you didn't get a chance to paint! :(

 

On the other hand, maybe it's a good thing, because the new color looks close too. Have you thought of checking a local dealer for some touch up paint or just to find out what color Werner blue actually may be or be close to?

I'm gonna give painting a try today. Hopefully the weather will hold out.

 

Local for me is 70 miles away... :huh:

 

As far as I know, Werner Blue is a custom color. So I'm gonna cross my fingers and hope that the metallic blue is close...

Looks like the new paint color is an exact match for Werner Blue! I'm definitely happy with it! :D

 

Here's the painted cab:

Just need to gloss coat it next...

 

Let me know what you think.

Thanks Ben! I should have more soon, but for the next few days, I won't be able to paint. Forecast has rain and(GASP!) snow...

Yeah, I'm with everyone else on that, Man....The paint looks great....Gotta go with that.....

 

If you can, check out the dollar stores in your area.....I know the ones down here, seem to always have some discontinued paint in there.....Of course, this is Houston, so......If you can't find it, here, it doesn't exist..... :D

Got the cab glosscoated. It's a little shinier then a normal Werner truck, but I like it. :)

Thanks J.T. We only have a a small Dollar General here. I went out yesterday to the local NAPA Auto Parts to get a bulb for the interior of my car at 3 in the afternoon, and they were already closed... The motto in this tiny burg is, "If you can't find it, ya shoulda got here EARLIER!!!" :lol:
