  • Paint: Ermine White touch up paint?

    Trying to touch up the paint on my Ermine White 63 Hawk. Is there a commercially available equivalent or close to it? I plan to repaint the car in a year or so after I get it up to snuff mechanically but would love to touch up some scratches in the mean time.

    The Ford Wimbleton White, if it is still available by Duplicolor in the touch-up bottles will be just slightly whiter than Ermine or very close for small areas, should be good for a Temp. fix.

      Hello Campbel,
      What type of paint is your Hawk painted in (is it original paint), Acrylic Lacquer or 2 pack?
      I have matched Ermine white to PPG - 8288, in 2 pack.

      regards, Cus

        Awesome. It is a second paint job done in the 80s or 90s and appears to be lacquer but for what I need the 2 pack would be great. Love to buy—how much and how do I order?

          I'm in Australia, but PPG paint systems should be in the states, you might have to go to a vehicle spray shop to get some mixed up,
          might have to get a litre or quart, & get separate hardener, hope this helps.

          *Just checked, PPG is definitely available in the US, just quote the number 8288, it's a very good match for Ermine white.

              Why not just take a painted part (or the car) to the local auto paint supplier and let them use the color matching technology to mix a pint of paint. That will give you a close color and account for age and color change.

                Good point, if it's not an original factory paint job the colour could & probably is slightly different
