Ford Highland Green Comparision

Hello Everyone,

I did a quick spray out today to get a look at the difference between the old and new versions of Ford's High Greens. Here's a picture to show the difference between the 2008 version and the 1968 version if anyone would like to compare.

A bigger difference than I'd imagine there would be. Both are nice but I think I like the lighter shade better myself, just personal preference.

I have the 2001 version on my car and it's about as dark (or was) as the 2008.

I'm really digging that Falcon. Except the "restored" side's wheels.

You'll have to wait until I get a 66' to paint to see the Ivy Green caparison.

As for the mix's, the 2008 is Matrix's formula and the 1968 is PPG's formula.
