From 1987 Dupont Fleet Chart -- ID This Red?
A long-time back burner project is back on the front burner with an upcoming competition as the motivating goal this time. To finish my part, all I need is a quart o' paint.
The existing topcoats are cut 'n' buffed Centari, which we in Southern California can no longer get, but a friend in Nevada can. He's offered to help, but I could use a little help from you guys too. My last can o' Centari is gone and I don't know the code number. I do recall however, that this bright, solid red was on a two-page DuPont fleet color chart from 1987. Of course, I can't find that chart either. Does anyone here happen to have such a chart? Or, can anyone here steer me toward one?
I'm not real keen on shippin' a finished body part for a match. This red does or at least did have a formula. If I could get my hands on that chart, I'd be home free.

I have a lot of charts but not that one. Do you have a supplier that can scan it for you? That would probably be my first choice, then I would take that match and get it mixed in whatever products you want. I'll check with my supplier to see if he has that chart available.

I would say DuPont would be best because they would probably have better access to the older information and could probably tie it exactly to one of those chips.
Or go to a DuPont supplier & look in the Spectra Master color charts. That has many shades of all colors.
