Re: Updated Color for Cordovan Maroon Met.(NN)
NN is PPG Code 50775. Note that not all colors are available in all paint types. For instance: Some may be available in DBU but not in DBC. Others may be a direct mix or an offset, which is close but requires tweaking. Some don't even come close and require further tinting to reach the target. Prodigy Customs had no luck with anyone getting close to Corvette Bronze and ended up mixing his own from Sikkens. I asked Frank in regards to that color because I needed it right. Companies vary in their availablity, and most importantly, color accuracy. Not trying to scare anyone, just giving you a heads up. If anyone knows of another way or source to get Corvette Bronze dead on balls accurate I'd be interested.
And: If you choose a lower line basecoat such as Omni instead of DBU for instance, you will not get a good color match. That's the sacrifice you make for the savings. Often as much as $50 per quart. DBC is the most coin. The coverage is also less with Omni so should tinting sealers increases coverage. Just using PPG as an example.
