Fjord Green Paint Code

Sorry, but I lost the original post, but someone had said that the code for
the Fjord Green color is no longer valid. I mentioned this to John Capone,
and he dug out the code for the last time he ordered green paint. Here's
what John used (and was very satisfied with the resultant shade of green):

Omni AE Acrylic Enamel MAE 43785A

I'm no paint expert, but should we also be putting a clear coat over that?

Most paint shops(of good quality) have a scanner. Take in the original glove box door and have them scan it for exact colour before you remove the gloss(inside is usually not bad for fade)
I Use dupont Premire single stage and have the code of the Can I had made up.Single stage paints are not made to have clear overtop of them. if you want clear you have to go to a basecoat clear coat type paint. Up here they have gone to a waterbase, very special equipment is needed to finish in this new paint.
Acrillic Enamel is a paint from the 80s and is not the best to use on Ampicars, it is very hard(May crack easyer)

NO! DO NOT use clear over "MAE" paints. The MAE stands for Acrylic Enamel and does not require a clear as it shines by itself. Use clear over "MBC" paint which stands for Base Coat. You can get the MBC in the same colors as the MAE. I use MAE on the interior and underside of the cars and MBC on the exterior.

I've had cars done with both single and double stage paint and I believe a single stage paint looks better and more like the original single stage paints that the factory used.
