Paint code

Post by what2do »

Exciting times ahead, about to order my Rustoleum. Van paint code is LH5V, does anyone know what RAL code this please. Thanks, Mitch.
Why would the glass be anything other than half full?

I have a van in that colour too (slate blue) and was going to go down the rustoleum route. VW codes don't match RAL codes. Some people have been getting custom colours mixed up by "Avenue Coatings". I emailed them and this was their response:

HI Harry

I am sorry to say this is one colour we do not have the formula for if you can get a sample to us (flat and 2” square) we could do a match for you

Hope this is of interest

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Let me know what you decide to do.
Cheers
Harry

Not the end of the world as the rear arches have just been removed, plenty of paint still on them. Will have forward them that and see what they come up with. Unless, anyone else has been and sourced this colour previously, keep my fingers crossed. Thanks for your input HT.
