I have settled on paint colors for the roadster. 1999 Lexus Spectra Blue Mica and 1968 Ford Sunlit Gold Metallic. I purchased a couple of 12 oz samples from Automotive Touchup and tested them on the under side of the hood.

I like it! There's a hint of bronze in the shadowy angles of the gold, and the gold is a nice contract to the blue!

Sure looks good. Are you using a single stage paint? I am going to repaint my car next summer. Looking for recommendations. What type of tape do you use for the striping.
