  • Help with a color.

    I'm going to be coating some parts for a custom Caddy. The owner wants it as close as possible to the original GM blue. Any ideas where I might find that color. I'm really hoping to get it here at Caswell. Some of the blues don't really show properly on my computer. Any advise would be appreciated

    To be quite honest with you, you are going to have to play with it to find the color that matches what you are looking for. Pictures of the colors don't even show the true colors they are in real life. I would suggest looking around, finding some blues that appear to be close to the color you need to match and shoot some test pieces. This way, you can compare both in the same light conditions to find a match. It is easier, when feasible, to match paint to powder, not vice-versa, obviously this isn't always the case. If you need a very close match, I would suggest going that route, it isn't that expensive to buy 3 or 4 small quantities of different hues to find what you need, plus it is the only way to know for sure.
