Does anyone have a current formula for Irish Green (6606) for the PPG line?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

My local paint house has an old book with all of the Porsche mixes for PPG, even had Togo Brown. Admittedly, their Togo didn't quite match my original panels, so opted for a rigorous color match. Want me to get a copy for you?

Kenik-
That might be somethig worth posting for more general use. I'm in need of matching Burgundy myself, which I know from experience is a tough color to match. My local paint store (there are only 2 for automotive stuff) didn't have any information about colors from 1970.

Irish Green is a tough one. TCPglobal.com has a listing for Irish Green in PPG.
We get the paint then tint if needed. (You had to when they were new with the factory pack...)They have been surprisingly close in the past. Also their own brand acts more like the "old" paint. At a huge savings.
Hope this helps..

PPG's DAR line of single stage paint really does look and feel like Glasurit. It is tough, takes a stellar gloss and has great depth. This is what I am using on the Togo Brown car.

I had to stop by the local paint house today, had them look up the formulas for PPG DAR single stage, PPGs 2 stage and Glasurit in Irish Green for comparison. Hope this helps!

Kenik, that is outstanding, thank you very much. Please don't hesitate to call on me for help with your '66.

My pleasure - we gotta stick together.

As far as my '66, I have been living a two year nightmare getting Solexes. I have manifoldsof mounds of miscellanous bits: aibox parts, a NOS rebuild kit and NOS Pierburg fuel pump diaphragms...but no carbs or linkages. Every set I have bought, I've returned because they are junk and would require stupid labor to rebuild

So...keep your eyeballs peeled!

BTW, the manifold coating question seems to have been solved by you. What's it cost to execute a recoat?

Scott, read this too late. I will be back at the paint house early next week to my color. I'll check then.

Kenik--Just curious as I haven't researched this myself yet, but do your guys have 6606 Irish Green formula in Glasurit 22 line?? I have my paint books in storage but they only cover 21 line anyway (the previous single stage)--different toners..........................
Thanks,
Jim

Jim, if you use Alan's search tool you get the formula for Glasurit Line 22. Damon (Series900) is a PPG shop, but he's doing a job now with Glasurit and I might be able to convince him to shoot line 22 on my car. . . that said we'll probably end up using PPG now that we have formulas.

The factory didn't use Urethane, they used Enamel.

FWIW, PPG DAR is described as 'Acrylic Urethane Enamel' on the can.

See our comments about Dupont's DULUX (synthetic enamel) in Kenik's DIY paint thread........................

Happenened to be at my auto body shop supplier this AM and dug up the following information:

Irish Green -- Color Code: 1515 -- Paint Code 213 -- OEM Code: L60E

Original Paint manufacturer: Lesanol 1-laquer based --

Mixing scheme: DURACRYL (DDL)

PPG Brand Code: 44249 -- Revisioin date 7/31/'75
__________________________________________________ _______________
DMA317 -- Green -- 86.9 Parts
DMA364 -- Rich Brown -- 69.1 Parts
DMA 346 -- Black -- 46.8 parts
DMA 329 -- yellow -- 46.0 parts

Note: that's the formula if you were to paint the car today using current PPG DDL laquer paints. I'll have the enamel urethane formula on Monday if you still need it. (The color library on the East Coast was closed when I got this info). Will you require H20 based or solvent based product.
