I am close to needing to find a paint for #2440 i'm restoring. i need to find a better match to the original color, did not like Dupont's match, and wasn't real happy with PPg's either.. does anybody have a good paint code or formula they would be willing to share with me for this beauty i'm doing? you can private message me if it is a secret...hahaha... i could spend a bunch of time making it match but if someone has already done that and would like to share i would appreciate that greatly. thanks

Just in case you don't have it here is Ford's number for it M32J 3077.  I realize that alone does not make a paint match especially in the new paint systems.

Jeremy, I think what JD is saying is what system are you using? Formulas don't transfer well between systems ie base/clear vs single stage. We have done AB in both and I believe matches are dead on

I can spray any system, The question I am asking is does someone have an actual paint formula from any brand or system that matches very well to original paint. I have sprayed out Duponts stock formula(base,  clear), I was not impressed. I have sprayed out PPGS stock formula an was also not impressed(base , clear).

i'm just hoping that maybe someone has already do this work and i can have the cheat sheet.... hahaha just hoping to save  a little time here. thanks if someone can help that is great if not, i will just have to put in time......

I don't think you are understanding me. In base clear the stock formulas match terrible in ppg and DuPont. Ppg concept single stage is nice. For base clear try sikkens or glasurit
