Colors and Color Codes

[?]I just bought an old SLC, and amongst the paperwork inside the car was a receipt for paint called Manganese???? Where could one find information on -line that would break down colors and color codes for all Benzs? Any information would be appreciated. Merry Christmas to those who celebrate Christmas, and Happy Holidays to others. Happy and prosperous New Year to all!

RE: Colors and Color Codes

Access the web site of http://paintscratch.com and input whatever year you are looking for. They will show the color sample, description and code. I think manganese is shown in the 1982 models - a brownish color.

Also, isn't that what Bill Murray was smoking in the movie Caddy Shack?

RE: Colors and Color Codes

Thanks Roncor...much appreciated. Also quite the coincidence..My wife has an mint 79 SL and we had it painted in your 87 Seafoam color and looks fantastic. Tell me what kind of rims you would recommend? Right now it has some 15's off an 86 560SEL and look good...
BUT would like to know what you have on yours...Tires?
Isn't Bill Murray a Chicago Boy?[:D]

RE: Colors and Color Codes

What year is your SLC? I have all the color codes for interior and exterior for '85 model year. These colors may apply to other years also.

RE: Colors and Color Codes

[8D]Thanks for your interest VWBUGE. It's an 80 450, and have since determined the paint as being MANGANESE BROWN METALLIC DB-480 80-85 . I would assume your 380 or 500 SLC is more than likely the same color
