Engine Paint Code

 

Here is the formula number for Cadillac Engine Dark Blue according to paint manufacturers:

BASF, aka R-M, carries this color in 22 varieties of paint.  Everything from base coat to single stage & high end to low end paint = formula# 243212

Dupont has a cross over formula that is available in their most popular varieties.  A check of the color swatch looks correct = formula #BS454

PPG does not have a formula at this time.  It used to be formula #14946 but PPG discontinued it.

Recommended that you go with the BASF formula.  R-M (BASF) was a main paint supplier to Cadillac back in the DK Blue engine days, and it looks like R-M has maintained this color formula from day one.
