Haro Paint Codes 84-86.5

Does anyone have these? Or, does anyone know if PPG or DuPont has numbers that are close to the fluorescent blue that Haro used in the early 80's

I HAVE SOMETHING CLOSE TO THAT BLUE, IT'S A PPG CODE 17041 BIG LEAGUE BLUE OR IF YOU WANT A DARKER VERSION IT'S 17040 COOL BLUE.
TRY THOSE OUT, TELL YOUR PAINTER TO MIX UP 2 OR 3 OZ. SO YOU CAN SEE WHAT YOU WANT


restore and ride, that's what bikes are for

I have heard about Chip's work. I don't feel as though I could just call him up and ask about his paint codes for matching his powder. I'd be different if I did a bunch of buisness with him, but he hasn't done any work for me, so at this point I don't feel comfortable asking for the codes and then taking my stuff to a lower cost shop. His stuff is the best, no doubt. But all my stuff is riders and I can't pay $200 per for riders.
