Nice paint scheme. Reminds me of the Hertz Mustangs.

Nice! What color is the gold? Is it Prairie Bronze? My stang is that color and I was considering doing something like on yours, but the opposite. It would be nice to know some of the details about the car also.

I used the Hertz Shelby gold which was DuPont Centari 43496-AM Inca Gold Metallic. I gave this to my painter and he cross referenced it to whatever the hell paint he was using.
