    Hi folks!
    My name is Florian or -as my friends would say- Flo. I'm a 22 year old student from Germany.. OK, to be more precisely: I'm from Bavaria, also known as the beer-county /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif near (or in) the alps.
    The current project I am working on, is a 1985 Chevy Blazer Silverado with the 6.2 Litre Diesel Engine /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif. (As the gas prices are horrible -you have to pay about 5 $ for one Gallon gas- , the 6,2 Diesel is quite popular in Germany/Europe )
    Unfortunately the Truck had been paintet in some sort of camo by one of the previous owners

    as the old color startet to show through and a few rust spots started to grow, I decided to dismantle and repaint the truck.

    So... step 1 /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I removed the camo with turpentine/nitro compound to identify the original paint /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif . After removing everything from the inside, the doors, the enders and so on, I lifted of the cab.

    So, Step 2:

    the old paint is removed. (sandblasting & angle grinder, using special, rubber-like plates)

    By now, the car is ready for the paintshop... if I would know the paint codes /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif (Unfortunately one of the previous owners removed all the identification stickers /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif )
    As I prefer the original colours, I'd like to have it painted in Apple Red and Frost White (or maybe Apple Red and midnight Black, I'm not sure yet /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif )
    So, if anyone can help me, I'm looking for the codes for following paints:

    <font color="red"> Apple Red
    Frost White and
    Midnight Black </font>

    Thanks a lot!!!!

    Greetings from Bavaria to all the Blazer freaks in the US and Worldwide!!

    Flo



    p.s.
    I hope my english is at least slightly understandable
