Sorry, I forgot to mention, most colors these days have variances, by that I mean that you can have 1 paint code with numerous formulas, before you get paint mixed, ask your paint jobber if there are variances to that particular color...all they need to do is punch up the code in their computer and it will tell them how many variances that color will also tell them where PPG has put all the variant chips in there variant deck box. Your paint jobber can than pull out his variant deck and you can match the closest variant to the color you have. The nice thing about the variant chips is that they are sprayed on and not inked which means that what the variant chip looks like is what your going to get when it's properly mixed by your paint jobber and properly sprayed.

Hope this helps.
