Ravena green L65K needs info on formula to mix for repaint NOW

I don’t have the formula but will need this as well. The local supplier says that sikkens u base (solvent) has the colour. I’m planning to get a color card from them to compare to what’s left of the original paint on my car. But it will be a while before I can get to it. I’ll watch this thread with interest.

PPG should be able to match it. An old formula might not even work anymore, the pigments have changed over the years.

Just be aware most moderns paints/clear are too bright to fully match.

I am a bit surprised the paint shop can’t look this up.

@partsman912 - nice work!

Bottom is as nice as the top . This was the first time using Nason (you may remeber them as Dupont) paint .Always used PPG in the past but the local supplier went out of business. I must say it was wonderful to use if you go by the spec sheet directions. Car was down to bare metal used epoxy sealer first then medium build primer before putting down 3 coats of color.
