Hi,

Recently restored and on the road in Queenstown, New Zealand.

I have found the forum to be really helpful, and thought I would share a few pictures with the group.

Cheers,

Yep... it's blue...

Sorry, it was mixed by the spray company in Christchurch, and I am not sure what they call it. Looks good though, almost a Ford Blue, but not quite.

Cheers,

Excellent pics - they look like proofs for a glossy brochure or press kit for a new car release (the car DOES look brand new...).

Well done Ruff - both the photos and of course the car... 8)
