TWO-TONE COMBINATIONS: CHEVROLET, BUICK AND PONTIAC


The first letter of a two-letter paint code identifies the body color. The second letter identifies the roof color. (For example, the combination 28-10 on a Pontiac would indicate the body finished in Atoll Blue Metallic and the roof area in Polar White.)

TWO-TONE COMBINATIONS: OLDSMOBILE


The first letter identifies the body color and the second letter identifies the roof color. The third letter, when used, identifies the wheel color.

DULUX®


Dulux is not recommended for the repair of LUCITE- or other Acrylic Lacquer finishes.

NOTE:


It may be necessary, at times, to tint colors to produce a satisfactory match due to normal weathering and changes in color standards.
