paint code
#1
My 71 mach1 is currently bright yellow. I am going to be going back to he stock color. My data tag and Marti report shows paint code I which is a Grabber Lime Green. Does anyone know where I can find the formula for this color. I have been to three diffrent paint shops with no luck.

Interesting that your local paint shops don't have that information.

Formulae are brand specific, you can't take a mix formula for Dupont Chromabase and use it to mix Spies-Hecker paint.

The original Ditzler paint code is 2294 - Grabber Lime

ANY paint shop that even remotely cares should be able to look up a crossover formula to whatever paint system you are looking to use.
