    Dupont paint chips online

    Dupont has an historical archive of its paint chips going back to about 1930 with a suggested current best match paint code. I am considering using the suggested match for "Rancho Red" for my '55 President although it does indicate the match will be darker? than original. A search on "dupont color chip historical library" should point you there. Has anyone found this site useful for your paint match?

    Shortcut to: http://pc.dupont.com/dpc/en/US/html/...color/hcl.html

    That address should get you there. I use google for searching. Don't use the quotes when searching i.e. use dupont color chip historical

    Yes, I have got to that page before but you mentioned "the suggested match for "Rancho Red" ". Where did you get the suggestion from?

    I went to the paint chip page for '55 spring colors which are actually on the '56 color sheet. The suggested match is hand written next to the color chip. In this case the match is RS627

    I see what you are talking about. I was expecting a search engine driven data base with cross reference to all the paint codes. The year I was after does not have any hand written notes beside it.
    Sorry to distract your thread. I just thought it would be a very handy program that could select a matching paint from a certain year with one from all the paint available. Maybe one day.
