Please help if you can. Thanks in advance PS Down the road I will also need the proper pin stripping patterns and colours

    Why not simply order the paint from John Pierce at Color Rite?

    I have seen different shades of Renault Gray over the years. I was hoping with the new water based paint on the market some one had gone through the exercise and I had hoped to just get the code and product name. I actually don't know what to order. I will contact John as suggested but I am also in need of actual dimensions and colours for the striping as well. Thanks Chris for the response.

    It is WRONG!!!!!!!! I tried them twice on restorations. Not close. I had a local guy match the backside of an original paint tank. I think I have the formula somewhere.
