The following seven (7) suggestions are samples from the standard fleet colors that we use for our custom horse drawn vehicles. You also have the option of selecting your own color choices from a different manufacturer, but you would need to document and provide me with the paint manufacturer's name, color code of your selection, and all other pertinent information, plus pay the cost difference.
We have tried very hard to reproduce these colors as accurately as possible, but they are not perfect. Our equipment cannot render them perfectly. No two computer monitors are exactly the same, either. For example, on my monitor, "apple red" has the slightest orange cast, but the actual paint shows absolutely no orange; it is the reddest red. Also, these colors are high gloss, so the slightest shift in direction will shift the color darker or lighter. Please keep these things in mind.
Poly is modern technology and, therefore, not historically present in the paint used on antique horse drawn vehicles. Nevertheless, many customers desire the crisp, sparkling shine of the paint used on modern automobiles. You need to decide whether or not you want this additive.
