And the person who suggested that Rick Kopec "is making a living selling Registries" needs his head examined.

His house is modest, as is his demeanor and family. Money wise, rumor has it he buried his ill gotten gains along the inside of "The Hook", just down the road from his home. Further rumors are that Howard kept mumbling in his sleep about "was it five or six paces, then turn right"...........

As for the rest, some clearly have a chip on their shoulder, many others do not, I'll leave it to all who read the posts in this thread to decide for themselves which is which and leave it at that.

I used the Omni single stage for the interior.

That is their low end paint product, did you order it online, or have it custom mixed at a local shop? Also, did they mix it as a single stage, or BC/CC. Also, how convinced are you that they followed the mix to the letter? I ask as 1/10th of a gram worth of just one of the toners can through the end result of your spray out off quite a bit.

Which you choose has to do with what you are painting (automotive wise)

Different automotive lines of PPG, each with their own associated formulas and final spray out end result(s):

Deltron
Global Refinish system
Envirobase High performance
Aquabase Plus
Omni (low end)
One Choice
Shopline
Value pro
Ditzler

Confused yet by my original question to the OP, not any more, I hope.  ;)

Does anyone have the paint formula for Nightmist blue that they have compared to original paint. I recently had my local PPG paint supplier mix up some paint for use on the interior of my car. It looks beautiful but to me it looks more like a candy apple blue depending on the lighting. The exterior of my car had an awful paint job done on it and was peeling in some area's down to I believe the original paint that looked darker. I belive that original color Nightmist Blue on #185 should be more of a dark navy blue. That is why i would like to check his formula. Thank You

Which level of PPG did you have it mixed? I ask, as with every other brand, there are low grade, mid grade, and high grade bases and toners, each will reflect a different shade once sprayed out. Same goes for color of primer/base/sealant used, and whether it is a single stage polyurethane, or base/clear formula.

Guys,

   I already apologized to Dominic for the thread hijack and drift, while I am not on this forum in that capacity, I've walked in those shoes, so seeing a post as above just hit close to my heart and I posted my knee-jerk response above. The bottom line here, as in every other forums I've ever belong to, you need to reach out behind the scenes, by email, phone call, a knock on a door if you are on those types of terms with the people who have the administrative rights to the site. Posting in threads like this does little, as did the original thread on the photo posting which I sent a link off to a site admin. For me it's just frustrating to watch a slow spiral downward, where instead, we should be reaching for new heights. Again, I'm sorry to all for the thread drift, I'll step away and perhaps down, as it appears I've lost touch with reality on this forum.

Wish you all well.

Bill

If the Powers That Be can fix (the situation) it would be welcomed.


They do not care.


Keep in mind those who take care of this site are unpaid volunteers, they devote time and energy to keeping the place afloat. Time away from their business dealings, time away from their family, time away from their friends, time, at an age where time in quite valuable, more so than the cars we love in some cases. Sometimes it's even more personal, and those that have the know how might just not be able to accomplish things due to factors that will never been known to the general public.

Hi is there a way to clear my history in the search box on the top right ? example..when I type in Fiberfab, and then click search, it takes me to Matt Damon to play Shelby thread, same happens when I click on the box and my search history comes up and I click on one of the items it takes me to another unrelated topic on the board, can I clear this ? I tried deleting the things in the search history, but it doesn't work   ???

If this is same car I looked at about 1999 it  is pretty rough . it was  stored  away after a bad restoration.

Could this be the same car that was in the Long Valley/Hackettstown area in that time period?

Barring a car crash, does auto racing and car culture make men live longer? This on the heels of a 90 year old that entered a NASCAR race in May. And all the old racers still around. And Shelby living to 89 even after a heart transplant from the early 1990s. What are your thoughts?

Best regards,

Richard E.

It's an interesting question, why do you ask?

Good luck toward getting that in your "barn"!

Mark,

Look closely at the plate thengo through pictures from the old tri states shows in the Poconos. We may have seenthis car before. Sure looks familiar
