In Topic: What is the web site for OEM paint colors

25 February 2015 - 11:58 AM

This site doesn't sell paint but it is a good place to find paint codes and colors by year:




I just click the "Paint Chips" tab at the top left then select the manufacturer and then the year.

In Topic: Chrome Spray Paint Comparison

On the Spaz Stix site, it says that the mirror chrome is "specially formulated for Lexan".  What primer would you need to use this on styrene or is it incompatible with styrene?  Thanks.

My choice is gold as well.

In Topic: Paint Chips For Your Bottle Paint Containers

I hadn't thought about doing paint chips.  That's a great idea. 


I haven't started doing a lot of mixing colors yet, so my system is a little different.  I bought some 1 inch round labels(Avery 5408) and type the color on it, then stick it on the cap.  Then I print the month and year and stick it on the bottom.  I also make the background Gray for Metallizers and Green for Acrylics.

What is the CFM rating of your proposed fans??




Thanks for the replies, guys.



each fan is 240 CFM, but I will need to use flexible hose to vent (about 8 feet).  From reading some of the other posts, you need more suction for the flex rather than the solid pipe.  Do you think this might be overkill?
