This South Dakota car came to Finland 2018. It is going to be a very good driver but I am not going for 100% original.
Everything will be restored or new.
The colours are pearl white and seacoast aqua.
I mixed the colour myself and like the result very much. It is pretty close to its original tone.
I painted the body yesterday and it feels really nice to have it done.

Hello Sid!

This color is certainly one of a kind.
I am gladly sharing:

100 parts GM Ermine White
50 parts Vw Beetle year 2000 Denim Blue
30 parts Saab Gn5 Olive Green
You can get these from every Mipa mixing shop.

They are all solid colors without clear warnish on. I paint in a garage with tons of dust everywhere so everything I paint is sanded with 1500 and 2000 and polished with a big
anglegrinder type polisher with 200mm wool pad.

I posted that picture below some time ago here. Resembles yours. This is how I plan to paint my 61 Fury, not sure yet if I go with black or white as the roof color. Yours looks so beautiful. You can hardly find a more nostalgic 50s color. Thanks again for the receip.

Ralf: Great photos documenting your work.

The fact that you flagged (painted) the rear differential gear carrier PN 1634 983 made me curious. That number doesn't exist in the catalogue but yet 982 and 984 do. Any ideas what the the 983 is all about?

Yep it is unusual with 3 as last digit but I have bumped into it a couple of times on the net.
It is the version with the larger 742 pinion shaft.
I should tell that all paint markings I have done are NOT of reliable proof for anything. I have tried to make them as right as possible
and that`s it.
The rear end is 3,18 but I can`t be sure that it is the one the car came with from the factory.
It would be interesting to know what the T stamped to the top of the carrier means?

Sorry. Can't help with the "T" but I would suggest that a 58 Firedome didn't come from the factory with a 3.18 to 1 crown/pinion (at least according to the part pdf that I have):

Your car is an exact twin to my '58 2dr Firedome, same color scheme and everything. Only someone painted mine pink later in it's life.

Pretty!  Seacoast really suits a 1958 De Soto.
