Abarth stripes
« on: July 23, 2017, 07:22:56 am »
Does anyone have the original color code for the Punto Evo stripes? Mine are in red..
Having pieces of them replaced at a local vinyl Company, but without the right color....it´s no good.   :(

Thank´s

    I cannot recall them having a particular colour code. Can't you get the pantone checked locally?

    GTMartin: Yes that´s the ide i went for aswell, as i have tried at a couple of local vinyl companies. But non of them could either match, nor tell wich color it was. So i might swing by one of our paint shops, and se it they can match it. And then the vinyl maker can search for that particular color code amongst all vinyl brands..
    Thank´s for the tip   :thumb:

    Thinking about it, the original strips may have weathered with age. It might be easier to get a match nearest to the original and then replace all the stripes.

    Yes. That  might be Another solution. But had a chat with the paint shop we use today, and they can probably help me with this. But it´s vaccation times now, so i´ll have to wait with this matter a few weeks! :)

    The thing is that some pieces are already replaced, and they DON´t match that well, so that´s why
    i´ve decided to fix this issue. Otherwise they are ok, and are all still there.

    Thank´s
