I'd have to agree with most on this. it's clearly a lighter shade maybe ford thinks the darker shade will sale better? I for one am not pleased that there going with the DHG. and in the current issue of Hot Rod mag there indicating it maybe offered in red? a little far off the mark. I wonder what the total numbers will be like for that one. I read somewhere only Highland Green, Black was the only colors offered.Wolfsburg said:Actually, I think it has been renamed simply "Highland Green", but evidently is the same metallic green seen on the '01s. You'd think getting the color right would not be a big deal.
They did. Art Hyde told us that at the go cart track when we went racing during the Centennial there would never be another Mustang painted DHG. :roll:TwoStangWmn said:Hummm, I thought Ford said in 2001 that they will never produce another Mustang in Dark Highland Green.
GreggVH said:The reason they are going with highland green is because then they can say yep we are keeping are word and not doing another dark highland green
Art said it and meant it .... back then.chilli bullitt said:They did. Art Hyde told us that at the go cart track when we went racing during the Centennial there would never be another Mustang painted DHG. :roll:
The AutoAlliance plant where the Mustang is built currently is in Flat Rock, MI. The Dearborn Assembly Plant was the previous facility, located in Dearborn, MI.installermarc said:Could be the chemical formula for paint code PX would not work at the Auto Alliance plant where the mustang is now built. Remember, our beloved '01 models were built at a different plant (Flat Rock if I remember correctly) and the process for building cars has changed a little in 6 years. Could be they have a different process for applying the paint that PY would not have worked with. or it could be I'm full of crap...:shock:
Personally I think the DHG on the 2001 is the best shade of green I've ever on any vehicle. That paint just sparkles day after day.MrStangman said:Yep Texas Bullitt nailed it on the head it's all about legalities . Change the color formula a little, the paint code and the name and there you have it. Heck to really cover thier tracks they can change the names of the mixing colors and the formula for those colors and you would never know unless you were a painter working in a body shop and did your formula research and knew your colors.
