Re: Hutch baby blue

Trial and error for me, try taking a picture or sample down to an auto paint supplier...
they have a scanner that does a pretty good job.
Worked for me... Best of luck!


I come here to look at bikes...

Re: Hutch baby blue

Hmmm. I didn't realize there are 2 different shades.  Are they that noticeable of a difference? I wanted to do my jap TrickStar baby blue... neutral

Re: Hutch baby blue

I have one of each, when the weather is better and i have a minute, I will snap a photo so you can see. They are different. The USA version almost looks like a faded lavender and the Japan one is more of a pure powder blue you would expect.

Re: Hutch baby blue

I wouldn't think it would be hard to transfer a DuPont code to a RAL or Pantone.  Tried googling it?


Hutch Fun Facts: All main line Hutch's with digits only S/N (no letters or baseballs) on the rear drop outs were US made and had their dropouts stamped between late '83 and '86.  Obviously the frame manufacture would occur slightly after that, even if they just threw 'em in a bucket randomly.  There is an obvious date code in that the first 2 digits seem to be the month and the 3rd digit is pretty obviously the last digit of the year running from '83-'86.

Re: Hutch baby blue

What's the Dupont code and I might be able to give you the Pantone equivalent.

Re: Hutch baby blue

I can't find any color chip with that code at all. Do you have anymore details on that color? Who/where did you get it from? Got a link to it?

Re: Hutch baby blue

I got it from Lou on here.  he says he used that book to match the colour using nos baby blue parts.  This is the book he used...  http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DUPONT-Spectr … 2c6a9182db

The third pic shows the light blues with BS codes.
I checked dupont website though and looks like they dont use those codes anymore

Re: Hutch baby blue

I can't find that code anywhere online whatsoever. I know they have new SpectraMaster codes and too bad you do not have THAT code. I could then give you the Pantone equivalent.

Re: Hutch baby blue

Dupont does have new codes and I am surprised they cannot tell you the new code which matches the old one.
I think the delineation is now CAS###
