Original Paint?

Unread postby budb » Wed Apr 15, 2009 6:50 am

Has anyone found a match to the original paint used on our RV's? I would like to touch up and blend in some attempted patching by previous owner of the off white just behind the front doors. I would also like to kick the previous owner in the (blank) for pressure washing the outside and messing up the stripes. He even said he did it to my wife when she commented on the striping being chipped.

So anyone having luck on finding a paint code from GM, Dodge or Ford for a white that is close please post.

I looked on one of the Yahoo groups and here is a link which should help you with your paint question.

http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/1wi ... sages/1626

Let us know if that was helpful.

Also check out messages 1516 & 1517 from the same site. They also have useful information.

I see you have a 89. Look up in your service manual on page P1-4 and it gives you all the paint codes and the Dupont paint numbers. The off white in a spray can is Dupont L8723A.

I just outright kipped the information and someone can slap my hands.

Sometime back there was a question about the color code for the lesharo..

Here is the PPG color mix that will be a real close match to the light gray
(/off white) body color of the 84 (et. al.) Phasar/Lesharo.

DMD642 YELLOW 26.0
DMD637 GREEN 4.0
DMD647 STR. BLA 34.0
DMD645 STR. WHI 738.0
DMD649 CLEAR 380.0
