Dodge Chrysler Cool Vanilla = Old English White?

I like the idea of using a modern generally available paint color instead of a custom mix. Anyone like to express their opinions on the color match between these two on a BE? If it's off a little I'm not really concerned as long as it is pretty close. It's be nice to be able to buy off the shelf touch up paint too. Thanks.

Not sure about the Dodge colour but, my wife's Mini is Pepper white and is a good match to my Midget.

There are two versions of Cool Vanilla. One is very close to OEW and the other has way more yellow in it snd is a terrible color. Or you can do like I did and went Rustoleum Canvas White. Foam Roller, Paint Thinner, good prep work, wee sanding every other coat, patience, buffing and done. Total investment < $300 including a buffer. Spray cans in big box stores, quarts ordered on line. I Nick it, easy touch up. Bugsy is happy and color gets lots of compliments. More money to spend on go fast stuff.

That explains why I see some "yellow" versions of cool vanilla. Thanks for the info. Your paint job looks great!

I like the headlights too, very retro look.

Trim rings arenโ€™t on yet. Trying to get LED Bulbs to work but the reflectors inside of the PL700 lamps are challenging to get aligned correctly. Very funky light patterns as these bulbs are clockable but having a challenge getting them focused. May need to go back to the Halogen Bulbs. I like the Bright White Color of the kampsti match the led turn signals.
