    I was wondering if you were gonna give yourself anytime to heal.  As the song goes, “If you’re gonna be dumb, ya better be tough.”

    …and that’s great news about the steering box.  That was quick!

    Amazing!  Paint next week?!?

    Unfortunately, I don’t have a VW vehicle or part in L21 to compare to.  I found what is supposed to be the formula on the interwebs (posted on page 14 of this thread).  Also, WW has it listed in their color charts for 1960 Micros (https://www.wolfsburgwest.com/colors/bus61.htm), but no formula.

    There are some modern vehicles that have a color that looks about right.  Audi has a color called Nardo Grey and my 2018 Toyota Tundra has a color called cement that looks right.  I’m sure in the color world, these greys are probably worlds apart, but they look good.  They have a more “true” grey and not a brown grey like Mouse Grey or tan grey like L345.

    Other than having a physical comparison, you all have any other ideas?  At the end of the day, we may have to wing it.  A while back, Pat mentioned that he might have a couple spray outs from the paint shop.

    Yeah Mike, We’ll send you some spray-outs.

    Knowing Toyota 2018 cement grey is what you have in mind will help.

    Damn!  I blink and you guys are done.  Excellent work!

    Yeah the color is L21.  I’d like to use a color that either is, or is very close to the original VW palette.  I just don’t have anything to compare it to.  If you, or the paint company, can find the formula that would be great!  Then spray-out’s may not be necessary.  I’m not looking to invent a color.  If the formula isn’t available, I just want to confirm what we are going with.  Hope that helps to explain.
