Looking for paint?

I am wondering where I can buy the original Fairway Green Poly (metallic) if you still can at all.


If I must I will go to another color but would like it to match the interior which is the same as the exterior and I can just fade it in on the door jams.


Another color may look ok and go with the green interior sides, It has tan seats so.....?


Being in Arizona I would like it to be white so it would stay a little cooler in the summer. I guess I could do the inside in white also, that would mean even more sanding.

The main Napa on 27th Ave and Thomas in Phoenix can mix you the paint and makes spray cans as well so it is easier for you. You should stop by and look at the books or give them the color code.

Most auto paint stores can take a pic of the paint and it will spit out a formula for mixing the color. Won't be an exact match but is generally close.
Might think of two tone with a white roof, using the drip rails, w/shield and rear molding as the break line. Then you don't need to get into the door jambs.

Thanks everyone, I was going to do the top in white to help from the heat, I am guessing that is why school buses (at least around here) are white.


Can't wait to get it painted. It WILL NOT be show quality for sure but it will look about 100 times better anyway. Gonna have a ripple in 2-3 places because I suck at body work but it will be nicer.



So just how much to do a couple coats? Will a gallon be plenty?

Are you thinking about a single stage like enamel or a base/clear.

For just the roof panel in white, a quart in basecoat, maybe a quart and a half in single stage to be safe.
For the rest of the rig, three quarts in basecoat, five quarts in single stage.
Four to five quarts of clear if going base/clear.

All depends on brand of material and the thinning and hardner requirements.

I'd also use a tintable sealer, will help with coverage if the color is somewhat translucent.

I am not a painter and thought a single stage would be easier to apply for me. White top and original green on the rest.



Thanks for giving me so0me idea of how much I need.

Not a painter either.

Single stage is said to be easier for solid colors. For metallic, base-clear is said to be easier. Difficult to get the paint to match when you shoot metallic SS. The distance and angle of the gun changes the flake angle, and you must keep the flake stirred up in the pot. You shoot enough to get a wet surface, and it runs, and can't be rubbed out (so I hear).

With B/C you shoot the color to just cover, still dryish looking. No need for a wet coat. Easier. Also, no requirement for hardener in the base color, so you could remove your goofs with some reducer and spray again. It's the clear that provides gloss, and that can be rubbed down or shaved off if there are runs.

Again, I'm not a painter. This is just what I learned from research getting ready to do my own painting jobs.

Fairway Green is a great color. I bought a 1973 CJ-5 in 1973 in Fairway Green - my first new car.

Trick for metalics......on the last coat, crosshatch at a 45* angle on both directions. Gets rid of the streaks from going in just one direction, the so called "tiger stripe".

Fairway Green Poly (metallic) was offered in 1973 and 1974, both as a solid color (paint code 512) and as a two-tone (519, models 16 and 17) with Champagne White (432).

Looking at the parts book, the Ditzler code for Fairway Green and Champagne White is 44760 and 8188 resp. For Dupont, 5515 and 7314 resp.
