Grill Paint Color -- Reprise

Recently there was a thread pertaining to the grill color code and how to prep the grill for painting. Being I cannot find the thread can someone please provide the grill paint code? I ordered what I thought was the correct paint color from automotivetouchup.com (ddl32930) however; it turned out to be the body color of my CS. Acapulco Blue. Obviously being ready to paint, I'm interested in resolving this puzzle quickly. Thanks in advance!

I use '67 styled steel wheel paint over a flat black base. The wheel paint is supposed to be the same color as the GT/CS grilles.

I believe the issue may have been with the supplier as my can says "DD" there are not any other numbers or identification on the can. I have requested the correct can from the "help" service and I will let everyone know how it goes.

Thanks for the other web site as well.

Take a look at the following previous thread. Gives you all the info needed to get the correct paint. I used it on my CS and it came out perfect.

In the last issue of Mustang Monthly it states that Scott Drake is introducing a new line of mustang interior paint and vinyl dye.

It will be nice when I can get a little bit of Saddle paint.
