I still say, your color looks like a more metallic version of CSX2000s final color of four. It was not Guardsman Blue, Carroll did not want that color!

Exclamation Well, Jeff...

...the color is the hardest part! It will look awesome in any of the three. I am looking at it on two monitors, though, and it is different on each. It is not the best way to determine accuracy. Best if you can you bring the samples directly to the car for reference. Is that possible?

Nope 3006 has sold. I have pictures at LMC when I was with the car in first person but still digi screen.
Spoke to Ryan (Restorer), he chose left.
Difference is DuPont Guardsman (Original) did not use pearls.
New eco paint does, hence in direct light “POP” in direct light.
Pics I have after 3006 was painted indoors different, guardsman like.
Did a family “pick L-R” while including Ryan and David at ESP
Far left it is….. for now.....

The only way to rely upon monitors, phones, etc. for colour accuracy is to use calibarated monitors. As photographers my wife and I have a colorimeter that we use periodically to calibrate and re-calibrate 4 separate monitors.

There you go! It is a hard task to pick the color. Interestingly, it looks like the original yellow on 2000 is the same as my car's color! Very cool!!

David Brown is getting traction on body/primer.
Looking forward to new beginnings.

I have asked for minimal fill as I don’t want a completely skimmed car.
Also to leave ripples on inside rolled edges to create original type feel of a comp car. Not a fan of the over restored.
