    Default Alpine white paint formula?

    Hi
    I am trying to get some acrylic alpine white paint for a renault 10 and the painter says the paint shop don't have a listing.
    Is there anyone out there who knows the formula?

    Thanks

    I have a close relationship with Alpine White,

    Try this maybe under the bonnet and see how close it is?

    Dupli-Color Touch-Up Paint - Alpine White, 150g - Supercheap Auto

    Are you trying to colour match the rest of your car or paint it ala fresh? Because dare I say it, if ala fresh... when are you next planing to park next to another Alpine white R10?

    Works: 1999 Volvo S40 T4, (has Choo Choo's)
    Playing: R12, SuperPos, thinks It's a race car.

    Default Alpine white formula

    Dear Rob

    If trying to match paint on old car it might be worth considering getting it matched by eye by an old bloke - after 40 odd years the good bits you are not painting will have changed colour too

    Try:
    complete auto paints
    30/2 Brear St
    Springvale Vic 3171
    Australia

    They have done two perfect matches for me on the 4cv. They do it by eye and need a bit of the car with the best possible paint. In one case I used an unused ( cut and polished) spare wheel and in another a suitably cut and polished rocker cover

    Should you want to go the other way I have on file ( somewhere) the glasurit codes for all Peugeot paints by year, including Alpine white, but this is for Europe and most Oz cars were painted in Dulux or Berger, so there may be subtle differences

    Am overseas at moment so ability to dig these out is questionable, but will look

    Best wishes

    Andrew

    My SIL is a spraypainter and they don't generally use the paint codes when the car is getting on a bit.
    It's okay for newish cars but for something that 50 years old it isn't the best.
    After years in the Aussie sun the paints have faded and/or oxidized. A paint mixed off the original formula would be close but is likley to be darker or brighter and not completely match the now faded original.

    They have colour chips that they match against the paint by eye and that gives them the formula.
    Some painters also have machines which they shine onto a panel and a computer gives them a formula.

    As you're painting piece-meal, you'd get a better match if you get your painter to match the existing paint as it is now.
    If you were doing the whole car then mixing off the formula would be the way to go.

    If you want rattle-cans, then it's a case of buying a can that looks close and giving it a try.

    I called Concept Paints... they have an archive... called me back and the only alpine white they could find going that far back is:

    06761

    renault from 1960 to 1974

    here is the formula for 100ml which is easy to scale up or down

    NM31 WHITE face: white
    flop:white 106.3 ml

    NM41 REDUCED BLACK face:milky slight yellow
    flop:black 111.2ml

    NM33 YELLOW OCHRE face:slight red yellow
    flop:light yellow green 115.7ml

    NM25 RED MAROON face:red slight blue
    flop:blueish red 115.8ml


    Your painter should be able to make sense of it... otherwise get a little 50ml made up first to confirm if correct.


    cheers

    Protec trade outlets can mix all the original Renault and Peugeot Dulon colors.

    Using their own acrylic system or 2 pack.

    Lots of advice then Robere. Doesn't the car have its paint ID on a sticker inside the boot somewhere? It'll be a Dulon number I think.

    I'm trying to remember how many words the Icelanders have for snow... White aint white, that is for sure.

    ...looks like the 6761 formula should be right then...
