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?

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###
