Kurt...happy for you that you can gorge on wienerschnitzel once again ...but my wife, ( from Gothenburg...), is curious, what does the word 'jotnar', in your signature mean? Is it a persons name?

Looks like there is more than just one Wiener Schnitzel in CA and the US.
Wien like Vienna...
I remember only one 428 replica, that was the one from Mustangs ETC in van Nuys, but I think that was not an SCJ.

wow....all those years in the 70's in CA I painted cars with enamal or lacquer and had to go get a dozen chili dogs at Der Weinerschnitzel being high on breathing paint fumes for hours.....now CA only sells water based?? No more paint thinners??
Wow......that means no more lacquer paint jobs....unless they could make a water based lacquer...but you had to spray all the tons of base coats dry and sand in between before the final wet coats...I can't imagine how you paint dry coats with a water base....dry coats were dependant on higher concentrations of thinner for quick evaporation...or how you keep runs forming on wet coats...
Almost makes me want to find a Der Weinerschnitzel just for old times sake...
wonder if they even exist anymore......probably went away along with the paint thinners...

|Droopy||You ae correct. Way too much brite trim and badging. Pricing is a little high but within range of some recent auctions. of course the green interior kills it for me. Take some serious money to replace all of that. I do like the 8 track player.. serious retro!|

Just curious, this 'Bullitt Replica' has been on eBay for awhile...big $$ but I suppose the power plant has something to do with that...
My question is, if this is supposed to be a 'replica', isn't there way too much chrome, and badging?
Still dreaming in Technicolor...or at least in HDG,

Take a look at this thread. Some very close ones posted on the first page. Looks like it could be a vintage European mirror. B looks really close!!

The origin and make of the movie car mirror has been, and remains a mystery. But in my opinion, it's not a 65/66 Mustang mirror. Most likely, it was an aftermarket or a mirror (painted HG) Max Balchowsky had lying around the shop when he prepared the cars for filming. Check out Ebay or the local swap meets, you may be able to find a round mirror that looks similar.
Roger on the antenna. It appears the movie crew mounted a base with a broken mast on the right rear quarter panel. However, when the car was sold to the WB employee (after filming), the stock antenna was re-mounted at the stock location on the right front fender (Ref: Mustang Enthusiast Magazine, April 2010).
PS...your work on your car is OUTSTANDING

Another question, it looks like the movie car has a round mirror that is painted not chrome. What mirror did they use, is it another Shelby part? Also it looks like they removed the antenna?
Thank You for any help!

It depends on the EPA regulations enforced in each State. Here in California, all automotive paint has to be water based. This made the traditional paint codes in CA somewhat obsolete. However, I was able to obtain an updated Paint Code for 1968 HG from DuPont Performance Coatings. In fact, they provided me with the exact mixing formula for the paint. The new paint code for 1968 HG, DuPont CP Cromax Pro is: 682792. If you need additional info, please let me know.
BTW...The Ditzler paint code you provided in your earlier post was correct. Again, the old paint codes could still be valid, if the State in question allows for the application of VOC based finishes.

Kidding aside, I have a question for you, Mike. How does someone get the actual paint color "Highland Green" and what is the correct code? I found DITZLER #43644 and posted this on another thread. I hope I was right. Obviously, McQueen's movie car was not the modern PX or PY, with all the metal flake/ clearcoat and seems to be a slightly lighter shade of green.
