Chris Craft 283 Engine paint

Postby bwilliams » Sat Nov 02, 2013 8:07 am


I am in the process of a Chris Craft 283 rebuild, does anyone know the correct paint specification of the original chris craft blue? There seem to be many different shades. I really want to get the correct shade. I am based in europe and shipping paint aerosols over can be quite challenging!!! I would like to get it mixed at a paint shop here, Even a good metal test panel will be enough to go on.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I will send you a good sample if you will post up some good paint codes for other readers in europe after you get the paint code mixed.

Send me a message with your address.
