An additional question regarding paint codes; discussed a week ago. I have a 
Dupont formula for Brigade red, which I used on my 69 2000TC. Lacquer is no 
longer available in the US and I believe; Canada as well. I have tried to 
match and scan this paint, from a panel, at my local supplier, but no exact 
match comes up. It is a lovely but unique red. Does anyone have a formula, 
they have used in the US, that matches the Dupont lacquer?I believe the 
Dupont formula was an exact original match. I only want to paint the 
outside; as door edges and jambs are still showperfect; but lacquer has 
cracked on the top. If properly done; red  lacquer  will last 5 years in the 
Florida sun; has a depth and classic appearance like nothing else.But, it is 
time to move on to an epoxy finish. James Dean, Ft. Lauderdale.
