Paint code question.

Getting ready to paint my 72K10. The color is original to the truck. Cannot find a paint code number on the truck. It appears to be a 519 yellow but I have had it mixed twice and both times the samples are wrong. Am I looking on the wrong color sheet? Does anyone know the paint code?

Re: Paint code question.

Mind you, colors vary on different monitors but ... none of the oranges necessarily match the maize-yellow color you got there. The color you got looks more like a school bus yellow.

I'd have them mix the 'school bus' and 'gold rush' to give them a look on your truck.

Re: Paint code question.

You could have a auto paint store shoot with a Spectrophotometry....it should match exactly

Pictures of colors on cell phones and computer screens mess with the colors, but I think you should take a close look at Omaha Orange.

Re: Paint code question.

Is the 510 medium blue known as Hawaiian Blue?

Sorry to hijack the thread.
