    Yamaha blue-gray Paint, Need a PPG Code

    Help! A crazy mechanic painted my evinrude motor yamaha “blue-gray” and of course I like it. The cowling peeled in some spots so I have stripped it and 2K primed it, want to shoot it with urethane and do the rest of the motor this fall. Would like to find a standard car color or PPG/Dupont paint code that matches for future convenience (touch-up, etc.) and I don’t want to use Color-Rite “factory” paint.
    Important Details: It's not the latest bluish-gray (8D?) (which is more gray) but the earlier "more blue" bluish-gray (4D?). The motor is currently painted with rattle can Moeller 025515 Yamaha Dark Blue Metallic 1994-1997. (The label on the rattle can is misleading because the paint inside is not the dark "blackish blue" it’s really the "blue-er" blue-gray). Thanks.

    I tried and could not find it. I took one of my parts to Final Finish in Bradenton FL and they color matched the paint perfect using a scanner and then fine tuning it by eye. Took the guy 40 minutes. Then they put it in a spray can and they also sell a 2K clear in a can.
    My paint came out amazing IMO. The spray can base coat is dead on for color and metallic. I have a friend who paints for a living and he was very impressed with how well it went on and how even the metallic came out.
    See if you have some place near by that can do this. If not, I have two extra cans and I might be able to part with one.

    The colorite is actually pretty good paint, and you can clear with whatever you like. How come you dont want to use it?
