Unimog Paint or Color Codes

Post by AaronHorrocks » Mon Sep 15, 2008 2:45 pm

A buddy of mine just bought an Unimog, and it needs some paint...

What is the correct, or closest color out there?

Does Rapco sell it?

Aaron, the paint that best matched my '63 German 404 is Gillespie semigloss OD
(24087?)
Many projects, little time.

24087 is what my M38A1 and M52A2 are painted in.

I took every color rapco sells and made paint sticks, then we matched 'em up. 24087 was close, but there was one that was closer... I forget which color it was.
