    Looking for a close color blue paint to repaint my mm35. Is there a over the counter spray paint thats close?

    I have a bracket I made 5(?) years ago, that I painted with an OTC blue paint (Target, K-Mart; something). I just went out and put it on my Syncro; it's a little light. But, in a dark corner, it would be hard for anyone to tell the difference. Next to another Miller, it might show up. And any one of the guys on this site would b!tch you right out.

        Fab,

        The 12oz spray can part number is correct and can still be purchased through any Miller Distributor. The quart can was recently discontinued but Dupont now has it available through their distributors. The Dupont paint code for it is C5885.

            take a panel off your welder and take it to a car paint store.They will computer analyze the color after buffing and mix the exact color.I used hardener in mine and it looks factory. My local Car Quest now has miller blue in the computer.They also have disposable aerosol cans that attach to a glass cup to spray with if you dont have a gun.I have 25 dollars in paint,reducer and hardener.

              That would be GM/Isuzu Blue. If anyone needs the numbers, I have them at my shop.

                    If you want the right color I would go the Dupont route unless it is just touchup then get a few spraybombs

                        Rustoleum Sail Blue. I repainted my Bobcat. Someone recommended the Krylon True Blue but that stuff sux. Krylon is junk. I like a nice finish after putting in 3 hours on bodywork. Krylon looks like orange peel no matter what I did with it. The rustoleum finish came out like it was sprayed with a gun. Dave

                          Thank goodness, it's not just me.

                          Spent a good little while sanding off a layer of the craptastic krylon paint after just about ruined my toolbox. Went to Lordco and picked up some Dupli Colour, that stuff sprays very nicely too.
