Well, you've probably noticed by now that things look a little different around here. You are a keen observer!

The whole site is new and that includes all of the software that drives this forum. With probably over 10,000 settings and hundreds of back-end programs trying to talk to one another, there are bound to be a few glitches that we haven't discovered yet. So, if you happen to stumble upon anything that just doesn't seem right, give us a shout and we'll try to sort it out.

Thanks for using the VCOA Forum and enjoy the new look!

Hi John,

I see you are in a dilemna about paint colors. My P1800 is a 1967 and I'm going to paint it with the Pearl White color 79-1. This is how I went about finding the mixing code: I went to a PPG paint store since PPG has bought out the Ditzler Company which originally produced the paint. PPG has established an offset number for the 79-1. It is 90196. This number brings up all of the mixing codes from the original 79-1 number. With the new number, any paint store can mix it. PPG has a contact number which is 440.572.2800. Any paint store should be able to contact them and get the offset paint code number. I hope this will help you to find your 79 color. I do believe that particular number might be for an Amazon. Best I can tell, the 79-1 was used on the P1800. Best of luck in your endeavor!

I'm new to the forum, and I don't know whether this reply is going to John or the Hans. Hans, a question about paint and PPG. I'm in a similar situation as John - just bought a '71 1800 and will repaint to the original #102. Would PPG know what I'm talking about, or is there another code I must locate first?

Thanks.
