Glasurit Hugger Orange 1971

Will be painting my '71 Blazer soon. Original color 524 Hugger Orange. Anyone have a Glasurit # code for that? Single stage. Thanks

Re: Glasurit Hugger Orange 1971

as a matter of fact... I think I do....but check with your local Glasurit dealer for validation. Get a spray out (as I did) and check the color before buying 2 gallons of it.

I caution you a little... all colors can be made in any kind of paint by any kind of paint company. (99.9% of the time).
Because you like Brand A doesn't mean Brand B can't make the same color.
Some colors seen in Europe on a BMW may very well be a Chrysler color in North America... colors are not owned by either paint brand or car manufacturer... phew.. got that off my chest... now onto more relevant information share.

I chose the same color as my neighbours Z28. Hugger Orange 1970 Code GM 65. Here are some pictures of the car. I can assure you 100% that my code below is a butt match! Notice how the car looks to be four different colors??

Because "Glasurit" does not make a single stage, you can still stay with BASF and go to their UNO line. (perhaps you are confusing single stage with solid color as some do?) UNO is exactly what I have chosen to do. I even went to so far as to buy some generic clear that will go over the UNO...wet on wet. (I used to sell BASF products as a career BTW).

NOTE: computer screens and cell phones drastically change color a lot from real life eye ball!

Re: Glasurit Hugger Orange 1971

When I was painting my sons customized Xtreme S-10 [his first truck in the 10th grade] I painted it Hugger Orange [with black SS type stripes on a cowl hood] I used the paint formula from the 2002 Camaro. It was white with orange stripes as I recall and those stripes were indeed the same color as the old Hugger Orange. My paint lady[more of a wonder woman]needed the newer color to mix the paint for some reason but it worked out very well.Good luck and happy sanding.

Re: Glasurit Hugger Orange 1971

Let us see some pictures of your painted truck?
What did you decide on? UNO or BC/CC?

Sounds about right which is always the case the paint cameras. They get you close but will never give a perfect match.

Re: Glasurit Hugger Orange 1971

That looks really nice! I'm torn between victory red & hugger orange. I was leaning toward red but after seeing yours I'm swayed toward orange! When looking at your pics I kept seeing little black spots in your paint, finally realized my screen was dirty!

Except you forgot to add the hardeners for another 300$. Yes, real paint is real expensive.

Oranges and Reds are the most expensive colors too by the way. Blacks and Whites are cheapest.

You did a great job of laying it down! Nice!
