    Does anyone have access to paint codes. I had somebody trying to buff out a scratch in my babies door and he burnt through the paint. I just had her painted last year. Its a PPG paint code. Its a Ford superduty silver color off of the 01 year trucks. I cant find the paint code for PPG. Anyone have access to the ppg books in order to get the code and formula?
    thank you

    FORGOT TO ADD THAT I ONLY HAVE ACCESS TO DUPONT CODES BUT IF YOU PHONE A BODY SHOP THAT USES PPG THEY CAN GIVE YOU A PPG CODE OFF THOSE FORD CODES.

    NICE LOOKING UNIT, GET THE DOOR FIXED AND DON'T LET ANYONE TOUCH THE PAINT WITH A POLISHER AGAIN UNLESS THEY ARE A PRO.
    LOOKS LIKE YOUR SILVER IS A LITTLE DARKER THAN MINE BUT IT'S HARD TO TELL FROM A PICTURE.
