Take a look at what my friend Patrick (Nibbs53) has done to his 53 coupe, he has owned this car for 15 years or so and is really starting to move ahead on it now that it is in the shop and Fred is working on the 54 right next to it,Pat has done every thing his self and wants a yellow coupe so this is the first of any yellow paint to go on, jams, door backs and some firewall area, still not happy with the color yet so he will work on it, color changes with each coat also, I told him I was going to put something on the forum about his color he said go ahead lets see what they think....Bob

To each his own Bob, but I REALLY like the blue on your signature picture car. One advantage for choosing a color for a 1953-55 Stude coupe is that they look good in any color so I don't think Patrick has to worry. :)

I'm not sure what we think matters!
But as long as you asked :D I like yellow when two-toned with plenty of white. For example the recent 55 coupe in eye candy a few days back.
If not two-toning, then a pale yellow like this is still a nice color. Add plenty of chrome.

Yellow is a very hard color to get enough pigment on to achieve the correct color, it also bleeds though very easily from the shade of sealer or primer or paint below.
So I understand that the color changes on each coat.

It is a good color, I happen to like the more pale or medium shades, better than brilliant blazing ones. [^]

Nice job so far. [:p]

Dumb question here, but has anyone ever seen a Stude of this type in bright orange? Me thinks it would look very interesting as a Vitamin C Coupe. [8D]

I came very close to painting the 54 in my signature a deep yellow. If I tire of the satin it will either return as a deep yellow or Coddington Red.

I like it a lot.

I've removed quite a few panels from c/k's and I found a pretty pale yellow under many of them. Too many to make me believe they were ordered yellow. Did Studebaker use yellow paint on panels as a primer coat?

Yellow is okay, but I think a dark green would look really nice, like the GT Hawk JP had at Lancaster. Maroon and cream is a nice combo, too.

I like it. Hard to tell since it isn't in sunlight, but it looks Jonquilesque to me and I like that color of yellow. I agree with StudeRich, the pale shades are very pleasant to the eye.

I never cared for yellow until I saw some of the yellow cars on here. Properly done, it makes a beautiful car.

I like yellow. My first ride in a Studebaker was Uncle Jack's shiny new '53 Starlite - yellow with blue top and red upholstery.

There's no wrong color................well, maybe Puce.

I like the yellow on the small pieces you have already painted. I do think a lighter shade would be even better. As others have said a yellow like the '55 posted a few days ago. Whether with white or yellow by itself. I think you can hardly go wrong with just about any shade of yellow.

Not a yellow fan, but that is a very rich and tasty looking shade. Go for it.

Bob if you are worried about getting the correct coverage most paint jobbers have a test card for spraying that is just a black and white checker board piece of stiff paper. When you cant see any shade difference then you will have full coverage, this may take up to six coats of paint. Dont skimp on getting the jambs of the car covered, it would look bad when doors were open and they were a lighter color then the exterior.

I like the yellow. I built a replica of a '53 like that with a white roof and about the same shade of yellow. Turned out nice.:)[8D]

I like yellow, but if he's thinkin that that particular yellow is not quite right yet I could be persueded to agree with him.
The second picture looks slightly different than the first, May be like you said (more coats) or could just be the picture.

Either way thats going to be one nice car when it's done.

Any chance he would build two and send me one when he's done???

My friend Dennis thinks any color is fine as long as it's yellow. Personally, I'm painting my 53 rust red. Why fight the inevitable?

I like yellow, soft and bright. hard to miss with a 53-55. Add white or black as a secondary color.

Yellow is a difficult color to work with. Too little pigment it looks creme colored. Too vibrant and it looks cheap.

But I don't find what he's doing to be a sin.

If you want a modern blend a paint shop can mix easy, try the yellow

My Hawk will be a pale yellow (57 color) with
some off white on the fins. Yellow is a bear to put on
though, hard to get good coverage..

It ain't just yellow paint that is hard to cover. Yellow powdercoating is the same way. (but i've got a secret!!)

To get good coverage with yellow I have been told to paint it white first. Yellow can look great as it no doubt will when this one is done. Big reason I won't do a yellow car as it seems to attract bugs! So much so that I like to park next to my buddy's yellow '30 Ford at car shows because it keeps the flies off of mine! :D
