Paint
« on: November 25, 2017, 05:48:00 PM »
Hi,
     Does anyone know what the paint is that was used in the 80's on F250's/Falcons etc?. I have some Protect 342-1166 in gloss but it didn't match. The Lustreless is not bad but still not an accurate gloss/semi gloss match. Anyone know?

Thanks in advance,
Brett.

It may have been Dulon; that was a paint badge often seen on cars in those days,
