Vehicle: 78 450SL, 87 BMW 325iC, 06 Honda Civic Hybrid, 03 Toyota RAV4
Location: Southern California
Hi again, all. Another question. So I've found the color I want this beast painted, but I'm thinking I should really have a paint code instead of saying "It's a Mercedes bluish-greenish color." just to make sure that the color I want is the color that actually gets put onto the car.
I don't know if it's period appropriate for my 78 450SL, I found the color on a car on e-Bay, a 1980s 380SL. But with the Palamino interior it looks incredible, and it's the color I want. The e-Bay ad described it as teal. Does anyone know what the code would be for that? Or can you point me in a direction where I can find it? I'd really love to find a place that has all the Mercedes colors with sample chips, but I don't know if there is such a thing. Maybe there's a color out there that looks better and I just haven't seen it yet....
Any help most appreciated.
When I die, I want to go quietly in my sleep, like Grandpa.
Not screaming, like the people in his car.
