I'm in the process of stripping my 240 in preparation of painting it myself this spring. My plan is to use an uncommon PPG color used on a 2011 Italian exotic. I have the paint code but rather than walk into a paint store and have them quote an exotic price I'd like to have the mix list in my hand so I can do some comparison shopping.

PPG keeps their mix sheets tightly controlled...I tried getting an account from the link below to let me view their sheets but was told I have be an actual paint store or body shop.

Do we have anyone in the club with connections to the paint or body shop world who might be able to wrangle me a mix sheet?

Bryan,

Are you sure they'll give you an exotic price just because the color is from an exotic car? I know some colors are more expensive than others (reds, etc) and metallics can cost more too. If you want to call a shop in far away New York, the guys at ARF in Poughkeepsie are great. I've done a few projects through them.

What paint line are you going with? Is it water borne or solvent?

Good luck with your project
Mike

Was just a thought, I don't really think the car brand makes a difference unless you get the dealer to do the paint job, heh.

I'm going with a single-stage urethane. The price at the shop I went to in Bridgeport for their 'good' Dupont was $279 a gallon with "everything". When I asked about their budget line they said about $170 a gallon.

TCPglobal.com has some great prices $139 a gallon kit, but for a paint sample/chip they charge $34(!)ea. I'm not sure how they expect people to buy paint off the internet sight unseen...trusting their computer monitors....

Nationals aren't until August, so I do have time to figure it out.
