    Hi everyone,

    I am a new member and am excited to join this community. I need some help. I just got a 1970 Duster with a slant 6 (225 engine) and 3 spd stick. It is a 1 owner car and is in very good shape other than a few minor dings and nicks. It is still wearing its original EB7 Jamaica Blue Metallic paint. The paint needs some touching up in a couple of places. Does anyone happen to know who sells reproduction paint? I also need the light blue paint for the engine.

      Welcome and I'm surprised it's not green. Lol
      Both of my projects are green. Most any good paint suppliers have the ability to match the codes.

        Hey now, don’t hold out on us! Us old guys like lots of pictures! I can’t say I’ve ever seen EB7 on a Duster... come to think of it, I’ve not seen it on a whole lot of anything. It’s almost as rare to see as B9 “Midnight” Blue.

            I used a single stage spray paint in a can. (Spray Max 2k) expensive but they will mix up your factory color. I believe Classic Industries sells small touch up bottles in your factory color

            If you're planning to only do spot repairs it would be best to have your paint custom matched and mixed in spray cans by a pro. Hard to say how much your original paint may have faded in the 50 years since it was originally applied at the factory.
