Paint Code 1b
« on: May 28, 2019, 11:26:09 AM »
I have a 71 sedan with an exterior of Wimbleton White and an interior of Med Blue (code 1B). I can easily find colour matches for the exterior but where can I find Med Blue for the interior? Duplicolor no longer makes this color. Ideally If anyone has the actual med blue paint recipe so I could have a spray bomb made locally.    Any suggestions would be helpful.

Your local auto paint supplier should be able to scan your existing interior, computer-match it, and put it in a spray can for you.  I've had it done a number of times.  I think the last time (a few years ago) it set me back about $15.00.  Hope this helps!

Thanks But my local shops have scanned the interior and the results have never been close so hoping there is a premanufacture d aerosol can or someone has an original paint mixture somewhere.
