Re: [GFS] 57 Fury paint sample needed



George.
PPG or Dupont I guess, never heard of Sherwin-Williams. PPG would be the most common paint down

I just got off the phone to the National centre of PPG down here in NZ, and there is nothing they
can do to help, as I thought they would say...
Thanks George!
Glenn.
