The POWDER BLUE CLUB
Robert Bradford - Queensland - Australia
1960 TR3A - TS76763
Powder Blue car under restoration.
New paintwork hardening off.
My 1960 3A was originally Powder Blue and has now been returned to it's original colour.Now Finished (are they ever !)
Under several layers, I found all the original which I used as a base however it was rather sallow and I added a little more "Body" into the colour.
I started with Terry Hicks's Formula and the cut/polished interior of a Door which was in good original condition. Using "The HICHEM system" The net result is as close as we could get in bright sunlight after 4 tries.
M34 ...2288 (= net cumulative weight of paint in Grams/4 Ltr mix)
34 ...3968 a little more white and less reduced blackM34 which means that the car will appear slightly lighter blue and perhaps a tad less turquoisey. Beyond that the colour elements do not vary a great deal from Terry's. . Robert Bradford
