    Hi, currently giving our dual cab kombi ute a bit of an overhaul. We are going to change the colour from a yellow brown to a two tone mouse grey/velvet green combo. Need help with the paint codes, the paint shops here in Tas can't seem to find the paint mixes for velvet green, mouse grey. Are there any out there who can shed some wisdom on the codes, or refer to a good paint shop?

    I think the pictured green is turquois (only option on bus selecta)

    Velvet green that we are after

    have managed to find this for mouse grey -

    PPG Ditzler L329 32247 (from paint chip via tcp global.com)

    Mouse Grey / Color code 325 / Year of usage 62-66H (via thesamba.com)

    70.0 parts 1051 weiB
    18.0 parts 1052 schwarz
    09.5 parts 1053 ocker
    02.5 parts 1054 rotbraun

    Velvet green =
    PPG Ditzler paint chip L512- 43319


    My partner wants to fold and go the easy route of just picking off a colour chart, but Im' determined.... surely we can find the mix for these colours!

    appreciate any help!

    Nice choice on the colour choice My SC is Velvet green and I never knew how difficult it was to find the paint formula. I have searched high and low with no success. Even Glasurit doesn't list the formula. Strange.

    Probably because those colours may not have been available in Australia.

    we have some colours! a bit of a saga. Lots of internet searching and asking questions.
    I didn't realise there were so many different paint codes, different paint brands, and different combinations of paint types! Thanks to Vince at Bocchino motors in Hobart was able to make sense of the puzzle!!

    as colours do - looks a bit different in the pic, but we're very excited to see them

    Looks a pretty good match to me. Where did he find the formula in the end?

    Sorry, long wait for a reply! I can double check with my partner see if he can remember how he found them.

    Wasn't that long. Only took 4 years to reply. :D
    Is the paint all finished? Can we see how it looks with the colour combo please.
