wook1138[TK] Posted June 11, 2021 Report Share Posted June 11, 2021 (edited) Hi all, So I painted my ANH TK bucket. I researched some possible shades of white that might have been used. I was under the impression that automotive paint was used so I researched some possible colors. I know @CableGuy mentioned he used a Ford Diamond White by Halfords. I tried to find something similar in Dupli-color (they don't have the exact same colors). I picked a "creamy" looking Ford white that had a code found on older 1970's cars. It is called Ford Pure White (C,9E,YG). It looks far more beige than I was expecting. Determining color from images is almost impossible - especially from screen captures. So does anyone have any idea of what shade of white the original 1970's HDPE buckets were painted with respect to Dupli-color automotive paints? See images below - am I way off base with the color? The bucket compared to a white piece of paper. My painted "Tantive IV" inspired HDPE bucket on the right, my AP bucket on the left Edited June 11, 2021 by wook1138 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
