Paint codes for a Blue and Silver Chibi Standard
« on: December 17, 2022, 01:28:46 PM »
This winter I will be restoring a Chibi Standard (Blue/Silver).
Does anyone have the paint codes that match the original color?

Thank you and happy holidays.

Randy - I saw your IM.

For my Chibi standard I used a custom blue PPG brand high base metallic. Both blue & silver are GM colors. See attached. I powder coated the frame and color matched tank. Although its superior to a factory finish. I opted for a "Pop" of blue metallic over a factory look. For the tank I laid down a base coat of Chevy Cortez Silver, with a top-coat of of PPG WA388A (Blue Me Away) "Blue" - then K2 clear cut and buff. I typically us "Auto Finishers" in Syracuse for all my paint needs.

I wish I could tell you there's a stock can of paint I used, but almost all my restoration projects are custom blended.

Feel free to call me anytime with any other questions ..
Good Luck - Kevin
