    i use krylon, but miller sells actual color paint in spray, quarts, and i think gal.
    don't know if they give out a code for it though.
    i can get you a part# for the paint, they have an old & new blue so the year of the equipment will matter as to the color.

        it dosent give me a paint code but here are the parts #'s for the paint from Miller
        098 205 12oz spray (new) miller blue enamel
        604 490 12oz spray (old)
        098 204 quart, air dry enamel (new)
        098 203 gallon, air dry enamel (new)
        sorry no #'s for larger sizes in old ???
        also only have the 12oz spray for hobart gray ?? its 193 340 if any one is interested.
        i got a few pages of individual stickers be it warning's or Millers but dont see a kit, you might be able to find one in the owners manual but i suspect its a replace one at a time thing.
        i dont have the old Miller sticker but if you do a serch some one found one befor so the # might be here in the site some where.
        also herd of some one getting one off e-pay, sorry e-bay.

          Here's the paint code direct from miller. The paint code is C5885 it is a Dupont paint. Should be easily matched at any other paint store now. Happy painting.

              If you have a paint vendor that can translate from the Pantone color system it's 'PMS 300'.

                    Well, now that I have 7 cans of engine enamel lying around I can officially say that "Duplicolor" Old Ford Blue #DE1621 or possibly Ford Blue #DE1601 is about as close as it comes to a '96 Bobcat 225G+ complete with Texas sun fade. I listed both colors because I'm convinced that they have the wrong labels on them. I touched up my 'Cat" with the 1601 and it looks perfect but the color on the cap would make you run screaming from the store. The chip on the website for the 1621 is a dead match but what came out of the can looks like midnight blue. Go figure?

                    Anyway you can wet sand it and compund it and it shines up really well.

                    Hope someone gets some benefit from this experience!

                          Krylon Close Match

                          I recently completed my first home welding project with my new Miller MIG welder last weekend. I built a relatively small, mobile welding table and painted the legs with Krylon Industrial "Rust Tough" spray paint. I used the #R00829 Gray Primer and the #R00249 "Osha Safety Blue/Gradall Blue". Pretty close match and is very easy to apply and get coverage without running. I'm very happy with the results. I will post some photos of my project and link it back here so you can see the color.

                          Here is the link to my post with photos - Thanks!
