Here is my anvil hood it looks similar to Area 51 in the Picture (Hood is indoors). I can also agree with ATLBronco75 that it is a bit bluer but still very close to anvil. I’m assuming you know how many shades anvil can be in different lighting, I get the same feel about Area 51. You would like Area 51 if you like anvil, but if your considering cactus gray to not “match” it ended up being much more gray in person. I was set on cactus gray but left the show set on ordering Area 51

Very similar to my color journey :)
I was immediately drawn CG, but subsequent photos and viewings indicated that it didn't have the tone I wanted...more of a retro greenish gray.

I haven't seen the Anvil color in person but from the pics it looks close. Still similar to Toyota's Cavalry Blue but lighter. Definitely darkens in shade and lightens up in bright light. These shades of blue don't shown dirt much at all, so if you don't wash your rig very often it would be a good choice.
I like the cavalry blue on the Toyota.

I did a little painting project on the toy Bronco this weekend. Please don’t laugh at my paint job, just now took the tape off and haven’t touched up yet. 😝It does have 4 layers of clear coat.

Im not completely sure this paint I got is accurate, it looks exactly like the Ford renderings to my eye. I see no baby blue that we’ve seen in the pictures. Even looking at my pictures they are way bluer than what I see in real life. I absolutely love this color, but I don’t trust it is accurate! No way I would order baby blue, I would order this no doubt.

I wish that too but don’t think they will.

I hopeful we can order a diff style grill as DIO at launch. Supposedly the grill is really easy to change.

If so I’ll order the shadow black top and swap out for carbonized grey grill
I’m sure sure there will be plenty of used one

I originally wanted my Big Bend in AMB, but once the one and (thus far only?) decent shot of it appeared, I realized how terrible it looked with the standard Carbonized Grey roof. I want a blue because our other vehicles are black and red; but Lightning is restricted to first editions and Velocity seems better suited to a Mustang than a Bronco. A51 is looking more like the best and last blue choice I have.... and it’s growing on me.

It’s my favorite color since Cactus grey is more like Toyota’s cement. I was hoping it would be more like Toyota’s new Lunar Rock color.

Not a Bronco ... yet

I feel like I'm spamming an affiliate link at this point but this video that I took in TN captures A51 the best. You can see it change before your eyes as the light and angle change. It explains all the different photos we've see and looks 99% the way it did in person. I swear this video isn't monetized, it's just the best representation of the color we have.

I'm actually glad you reposted this because I was trying to find it the other day to show my wife lol
