    I need some Washington blue M1747 or the slightly darker Dearborn blue M1723, both mid 30' Ford colors, for a project I'm doing. Single stage DCC acrylic urethane.
    I'm trying to find the new/updated paint codes for PPG.
    The old PPG codes (QDE 458 and QDE57) codes I have, seem to no longer work according to my local paint supplier in Austin TX (Tasco Paint supply).
    Can anybody help? I'm also looking for some paint chips so I can actually compare the two colors side by side, since my only reference right now, is pictures from the internet.
    Also, is there anybody out there who would be willing to mix and ship approx. 2 gallons once I make up my mind.
    Thanks
    PS: Codes below do not work anymore??????

    Have code for Limco at shop if you want that. Chips don't have correct color. New paints have different tints. I have them mix a washingtonblue.jpeg pint and then spray it out to see what it is like. Spray over black primer and gray primer to see difference.

    Try PPG 3146, a very dark blue called "Nightwatch Blue". You can also try PPG 2925 SC called "Midnight Blue". The "SC" means it won't be cheap. As I recall both of these formulas were made with a lot of transparent toner vs solids. If you're looking for a rich deep blue these will knock your socks off. As suggested above shoot them over black and the look is just short of magic. Good luck.
