1968 Jack yellow color

Post by davdav2000 » Sun May 05, 2019 2:21 am

I found and cleaned up a really rusty jack from a 68 1600; could hardly tell what it was... It looked so dead, amazing what three days in vinegar bath did. Now it actually works fine.

There were some specks of yellow, and I've seen other cars with the yellow early jacks. I want to repaint it to the original yellow color for my 68 1600. Of course, for show as they are dangerous for actual use.

Does anyone one have a paint name/color? Couldn't find info searching this site.

Thanks,
David

I went down the same path you have. Just get some Yellow spray can that approximates the original colour and job done!

Rustoleum School Bus Yellow is a great match.
