Re: [GFS] 57 Fury paint sample needed

Glen, I did some checking with the place I get my paint done and here is
what we found. you can compare these with George's information for

PPG has a Ditzler Number of 80624
goes to a PPG Code of 80624, Code Tripple A, sand dune white
may come up as a commercial code of DT 1280

Dupont centari number 9022
The mixing formula for Lucite Laqure is as follows for a gallon mix

Tint# 450L  go to 4.0 on gallon scale
Tint# 453L  go to 96.0 on the gallon scale
      405L        306.0
      402L        1417.0
      465L        2602.7
      485L        3766.9

hope this helps and can be verified as correct. Later, Jim
