1994 Corvette C4 Convertible - 1 of 24 - wip

"Copper Metallic" (WA136A)

"Ten different exterior colors were available for '94, with only 116 of the 23,000+ Corvettes painted in this color, easily making the rarest color offered. In fact, when producing these cars in the Bowling Green factory, Chevrolet determined it would be especially difficult to match this color consistently on the various body panels. After only three days, the decision was made to pull the plug on this color after only 91 coupes, 24 convertibles, and possibly one ZR1 were built."

So: let's do this. As there are only 24 convertibles out there, I named my album this way.

Googlesearch results: https://www.google.com/search?q=Copper+1994+Corvette&tbm=isch ; on some pictures you can see how difficult it was to paint. Some front ends have little other color like the rest of the car.

This color looks incredible on the C4.
