I'm trying to find a particular paint color from around 1990 thats on a Pierce. I have the paint code number, but Dupont,has changed their numbers, and according to them, they are unable to match the number, even though it's their paint code, Pierce was also unable to help.
Thanks for the help.

Try doing a sreach on the web for the number, I'm guessing your have a Dupont Imron paint number? There are web sites out there that have the numbers you just have to look hard to find what your looking for, we went thru the same thing trying to match up the paint on a 1990 ALF pumper for a new engine in 2000.Peace to our fallen brothers...

Chances are it was painted with single stage Imron polyurethane enamel.
Most DuPont dealers have an paint analyzer that can read the mixture of the paint and print it out as to what it is made up of, and tne they can dupicate the color for you.
Remember that older paint will have to be buffed out in order to have the color match properly.

DuPont can't cross-reference a previous paint code???? Horsesh*t! I find that hard to believe! Are you sure you talked to DuPont, or was it some paint dealer or a body shop, that just didnt feel like dealing with the hassle????
I was able to have DuPont cross the paint code for the paint on my 1958 FWD for restoration purposes! All I did was call Dupont themselves.....and talked to a customer service rep for about 10 minutes, and received the "modern" number for that color!"Loyalty Above all Else. Except Honor."
