If it wouldn't be asking too much, and it is possible, could one of those 03C trunk lids be brought to the Carlilse event? I have never seen the enamel on one of these cars, and probably others here haven't either. Would be nice to see what all this discussion has been about.

I was just at my O-1.. here is a simular shot to my C-1 for comparo.
If you look closely you can see test dots from years past bright white comparisons of one kind or another. Point being. The windshield pillar looks just like the C-1 to me

Stop by the tent at the GM nationals and see 03-C Enamel. I am bringing the door pictured here. I will have a can of lacquer thinner on hand for some comparisons too. Cheers

Quite small piece of the puzzle but incase anyones interested; When you Google the word "Ermine" this is the fellow you find. Not a lot else for the word Ermine.. Its really white though for a woodland creature Smiler

Throughout the Renaissance, the ermine was a very important symbol of purity. The ermine is depicted in heraldic symbols, royal gowns, and in significant portraits of the Renaissance. The ermine, classified as Mustela erminea, is of the weasel family, and is commonly found in Canada and Northern Europe. The ermine is known for its pure white fur with its noticeable black tip on its tail, which has been highly prized by trappers since the 16th century. Ermines are very small animals, only 6 to 12 inches from head to rump, with a long, bushy tail. It is the tail that is prized by traders to make coats, stoles, or robes for monarchs, clergy, and the extremely wealthy. Legend has it that the ermine, with its beautiful white coat, would die before soiling its fur, which idea has lent itself to the ermine as a symbol of purity and chastity. We can find numerous examples in art, literature, and heraldry of the ermine representing the purity that its white coat suggests.

Reading the above, I would gather that the person at GM who chose the name Ermine for the white was aware of this " fur to the kings " color and also that its PURE WHITE

I suspect that we have all always only known Ermine after it had faded to parchment..when in fact the true and (as new) color was really quite white confused
