    This isn’t exactly the military Olive Drab of my youth……:)

    I agree with Ian . Gives it a subtle factory look. The original color on the 41 sedan that I used for the start of my custom was what I call a  Grey/Green for lack of a better word. This look deeper green then that did.

    This car is gong to have lots of people that think they know Mercs scratching their heads.LOL

    The super charger is the cats meow.  Years ago I tried to buy a 1957 Studebaker Golden Hawk with a McCulloch super charger on it. I have been fascinated by them ever since.

    Beautiful work and car.

    Military green is the new black Tony

    The Colorbond chart is more useful than people imagine for selecting early paint options. Rivergum has been used more than once I can assure you from personal knowledge.;)
