Re: Paint Codes

Any major paint supplier can get or match the paint, they did for my 55 Chrysler!

Question Re: Paint Codes

If you have the code that is that should be needed, something is wrong here. Also most high line paint suppliers can scan the paint with a camera and match it on a computer base, of course this costs money.
