    Default Virage paint code

    Looking for some touch-up and spray paint for a white 1978 Virage. Still has the paint code under the bonnet but some online digging doesn't shed any light. Not sure if the "Sno White" will match with anything called that by another maker. I've heard Alpine White and Ghost Gum White mentioned before too, not sure if they are Virage or older 12 colours.

    Paint code is Dulux, SNO WHITE 566-17174

    Cheers

    If you have the paint code you should be able to go to any reputable paint supplier, and they should be able to mix you up some paint in either a pot or a spray can.

    If you want to do a complete respray the the paint code is good. If you are doing a touch-up or partial respray then it's better to match the paint as they would be some weathering that will have changed the colour over time.
    If you take a sample of the paint to any panel beater they should be able to match. They have machines that put on the panel and it give them a readout of the formula to match the sample. The plenum is good as it's easily unscrewed and has weathered paint on the outside and pristine paint on the inside. Doors, boot lid, and bonnet are also good but of course and much larger to remove and lug around.
    Some paint shops might also be able to match by colour.

    The ghost-gum colour and alpine white are off-white, Sno white I believe is a pure white.
