  6. My search is on for a new supplier. I am sure that we have someone in this area who can think out of the box. thanks for all comments on this.
  7. The ( high north ) local store ( Lordco) paint expert called me up and informed me that they cannot provide me the paint as it is banned in Canada (since 2010). The PPG codes are in the book for Bombardier Blue ( 10010) and La Plata Blue ( 10024). I believe she said California does not allow this paint as well. PPG can supply the formula though. Go figure. So my only recourse now is to get a 2.5" x 2.5" flat piece of paint chip from the truck. They would scan it and come up with something close. Problem is the only thing that I have now is under the dash on the firewall. I have asked my body guy to retain this for provenance. The rest is now sand blasted. So I am sort of at a standstill now on sourcing this paint. Alternate plan is to go south and bring it back across. I don't know if customs actually would ask what type of paint if I did claim it on crossing. I am thinking this would or could be easier in the East as opposed to the tree hugging West. No offence intended I like trees too but......
  8. That is the theory. I have had paint chip samples scanned before and paint created by code which was not a problem. I have contacted PPG and confirmed the PPG code and now hooked up the local store to contact them to get the formula. The local store was able to reference the code and color. Once the store confirms they can blend and create it I will get them to make a spray bomb up. The store says they do not have the ability to create a sample card as they have no booth. This contradicts PPG as they said that is what they should do. The store quoted 30 to $40.00 for the bomb. Whatever gets the job done to confirm the color. Anything out of the box that you want done up in this neck of the woods is always a challenge. Thanks for everyone's input on this.
  9. I have sent an email to PPG. I don't have the ability to take a piece of the vehicle to a paint dealer. The original color was on the both sides of the firewall. I have taken in other small parts though in the past and had them scanned and had the paint made up. Another option is to blow up the paint codes above and see if they can scan that. I am hoping to hear back from PPG though. thanks for your comments.
  10. It is no problem getting the paint blended once I get the crossover PPG code. Apparently it is available but I have not found it yet. I will for sure post it here when I find it. I am hoping though someone within the group here will have it and respond.
  11. Does anyone have the PPG codes for 1942 Dodge paint colors? Paint suppliers I have contacted cannot use old codes. I am specifically looking for Bombardier Blue and La Plata Blue. One of these is the stock color of my 1942 Dodge Carryall Suburban civilian model. I need to make a spray bomb up to match to paint to determine correct color. thanks, .
  12. Hey Alan, Thanks for your comments. I will check all those things out. How do I contact Eric?
  13. Thanks for your comments. Got all that. I believe it is a 201.3. Most likely engine built in 1941. Apparently the truck was built December 41 / January 42 as the civilian production stopped February 22, 1942. I have factory photos of the production line where you can see subtle changes after the war effort took over and the production of them became command vehicles. I had hoped to extract something from the Body Tag but from what I can gather it is just a number with no decode.
