surprisingly got it for a bargain. Same as most of the other NOS stuff I have managed to collect, you have to be very quick.
I have had three sets of the madeira -sold one not long ago.

they had an account where phone numbers and business names were listed on other listings never assume you can bid to win. always call or contact! ASAP. and then again and again until they answer. thats how I've scored my wagon, my nos trim and my hdt steering wheel.

Hunt them down and hound them. NOS does not come to those who wait.
I recently sold a NOS (un-opend) driver side rear scuff plate for $35 plus $10 postage and handling.
The guy asked for free postage lol told him he was dreaming.

[QUOTE=chief355;3039637]Occasionally you will find some people hate being harassed about selling a NOS item. I found this out when I purchased NOS Calais wheels. He had a dozen people call within 30min trying to offer more coin.

I'm have no sympathy for some one who puts a rare item up for sale and get offers thrown at him left right an center...
It goes to show that Its some times better to be open to offers (if your prepared to have a few drop out) rather than sell low an fast and be hounded.

Quick question gents.
Can't seem to find paint code 2B 062 listed anywhere. Its on a Dec 87 build Calais Turbo. Color looks like Imperial Blue (2B 059) but I'm not familiar with the above code.

Can anyone help?

i cant find that listed either, it could have been a miss print from factory. ive seen a few others that wont come up in my paint system at work, though usually its only one letter/number thats wrong not 2. it could be 2B042? light blue metallic (blue ice).

Heres a pic of it.

Car is Dark Blue so I was assuming its Imperial Blue or Marlin Blue.

Looks too dark for both in that photo, especially Marlin Blue, but Imperial Blue can look very dark in shadow. Weirdly, it looks more like the SV88 colour Dorwood Blue, which is 2B068, but if it's not an SV88 I would doubt it very much.

Have you got a photo of the whole car handy ?

that stuff contains Phosphoric acid.
Its a run of the mill rust removing compound, cheap stuff use gloves as it burns your skin and gives you cancer.
works well on anything that suffers oxidation.
Tast's like **** to
