Has anyone tried replicating Safford Cream and/or Ontario Blue with a current paint supplier. Those are the original colors to my '54 and would like to come as close as possible to the original Studebaker colors.
Thanks

Probably not many at all Bob, but it will be a really nice and rare combo. If PPG or Dupont can not match it for you at an Automotive Paint Store, nobody can!

Always insist on a "spray out" test panel of their mix before excepting it though! Good luck, I like it!

Three sources you may want to check here:
1.Google/keyword Auto Paint Library-They should have the original Ditzler numbers assigned to those colors.
2. Tower Paint,Oshkosh WI. They should be able to dupe these colors in spray cans.
3.P and T Auto Parts, Detroit MI Should have these colors in quarts and gallons,pre-thinned if you like.
Hope this helps......
