Hi guys,

Does anyone have a paint code for the yellow valve cover paint for the early 65 Studes? I assume its the same as the 64 valve covers. I used the SI paint, but it was too bright yellow. Thanks for the help.

:( I've never seen one, Nate.

Remember, that yellow tends to darken with age and the environment in which it is operating (under-hood heat, chemical fumes, etc.), so the newer paint will appear brighter than anything "old" you polish up for comparison. :cool: BP

I think what Nate may be saying is that the Late '62 to Early '65 Valve Cover Color was Pale Yellow, not "Daytona" Bright Yellow.

I just grab a Can of Pale Yellow off the shelf at a Paint Store like Sherwin Williams.

I think he is saying that scanning the Color of Jeff's CE will not work! :D

You got it Studerich! It has more white in it than a bright yellow.

I know Kent had a bunch made about 7 years ago, but I don't know him and from reading old posts, sounds like I can't contact him.
