Glacier Blue From David Breneman:
"My car is Glacier Blue with Blue and Gray seats. (The Mk II grille is a relic of the 1960s). My car originally had an Ice Blue top, but I was unable to find any material in that color except on custom order in wholesale quantities ($$$). I included the original Ice Blue tonneau. The color is sort of a pale robins-egg blue, but it photographs terribly".

Many coats of paint were applied to my 57 on top of the original Tyrolite Green. The original green color was still on the inside of the tail light plinths. I took the plinths to our local Dupont paint jobber and they used their "computer" to match the color. The paint can info is: Dupont Chroma One Single Stage Urethane.
