Yes, Wimbledon White with Guardsman Blue stripes

Wimbledon White is a VERY creamy white, particularly in a shop under florescents (assuming they're not 5000K lights)... in the sun it's a lot brighter

well we could not get the color right, so we just went with a bright white, not sure who's but it should look great against the blue. now I am wondering about the interior white trim(dash, door panels, steering collumn, & rear 1/4 trim panels, its a convertible) whats the consensus,ya think I should paint the interior white the same as the stripes?

I would match the white of the upholstry-- it's an off-white closer to whimbleton. If you have your soft pieces already, use them as a guide.

Toyota "Super" White worked for me. It's one of the brightest whites out there... Check out the links for ideas on matching the interior...

Attached are some photos of a 68 FB I did with Acapulco Blue and White Lemans stripes. I custom matched the interior to gel with the outside colors of the car. I had to special order the upholstery through TMI, but I think the additional 2 week wait was worth it. I also had to custom order the door panels. Check out the attached pictures...

And don't forget that the stripes are NOT the same size all the way through the car.

I got the info sheet from someone on the forum for the correct size info, of course, my painter would not do it for the price shelby charged, just a litle more than his 64.00 of 1965, about 600.00 more
