Colour 70 Cuda Grille
« on: August 07, 2017 - 12:58:45 pm »
I'm about to paint my grille for a 70 Cuda No. matching 340 4 speed B5 blue. I would like to know what colour the grille should be. Some one painted it black with a spray bomb. From the chips in it,it looks like it was all argent light silver textured. From the searches I did some are black some are argent light silver with black bars some are all argent siliver. I even seen a few with the darker argent. What would be the correct colour, I want to order the paint from Totally Auto so I really need to know Thanks

The grille is light argent silver.
Call Totally auto and they will direct you to the correct color.
This has been post in the past weeks about the correct paint
The grille paint has blended chips of multi-colors.
It is not neutral looking like the rallye wheels
All 70 Barracuda Cuda grilles are silver except the AAR
I tried to get pictures of my cars and a friends 440-6pack using the Totally paint.
Lousy weather.

I did not prime my grille.
I did clear it and it affected the tone.
