Re: Paint Code Help

Hi there and welcome.

Nice van.

I've checked dupont's website and this is what they have listed for a 1992 Trafic;

  • 139
  • 1992 - 2003

Essentially the same as you have found.

It looks close enough for me to be confident that this was the original colour, but some 22 years of exposure to the elements (and chasing the sun) will have altered the colour it now appears.

What I would suggest would be to visit an automotive paint shop/supplier who can use paint cards to obtain a closer match for you.

Your other option would be to give the van a good compound and claybar treatment to see if the oxidised layer can be polished away.

Otherwise you'll end up with a patchwork quilt.




This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
