Strike one. Took the ductwork to the paint shop that painted the car. The catch is that I want to paint the ducting the lime green color that the powder-coater painted various trim parts with. I’m almost positive that the paint shop should have been able to cross the powder coat color code (RAL6018) to an equivalent liquid automotive paint code. I think they just didn’t want to bother since it wasn’t a big job. I’ll try taking a color sample to a regional paint supplier and I bet they’ll be able to do it. Rumor is that some places can not only cross it, but make up a batch of spray paint as well if the user doesn’t have a sprayer.
