Amphicar Paint Formulas Followup

Bill Connelly

Guest
As promised to this List, below is the response I received from the good
folks over at PPG Coatings Automotive Paints Division and their Color
Library staff. Their message just below contains the exact formulas needed
to reproduce three of the four original Amphicar colors, Beach White (Strand
Wei?), Regatta Red (Regatta Rot) and Lagoon Blue (Lagun Blau) using their
"Global" line of automotive paints. I don't know why Fjord Green (Fjord
Gr?n, Ditzler Code 43785) was not included in their list below, but I will
follow up with them and then follow up with all of you.
