The original paint was a Ditzler DDL-32961. What is the best match I can get today. Year One has paint in a quart for $150. Or, I can get it in a spray can, OER, classic industries, etc for around $16 bucks. Dupont may have a match with 9901L, but this is not confirmed.

Thanks for any help.

I have this on my web page under restoration.

Laquer Code 6347 D Dark Grey IRD (RM ALPHA-CRYL)

Original Laquer paint code and ingredients
PNT-90 100 THINNERS
AT -141 340 BLACK
AT -114 490 MET
AT -176 618 REDISH BROWN
AT -174 639 YELLOW
AT -190 657 WHITE
AT -179 659 ORANGE RED
849 1000 SUEDE CONCENTRATE

Here is what I used since I could not get the lacquer. NOTE! Don't forget to spray the last few coats
farther away from the wheel so when it hits the rim it dries fast to create the rough texture that GM
made on these wheels. Also don't forget to mix mix mix the paint so the metallic makes the paint light.

Thank you. I think that's the way to go, wheel looks great. I did want to mention the Year One paint appears to be a good option also. The Year One
part # QP961 is called Duracryl , an acrylic laquer. Could this be the original formula?

I don't know if you can read the print on this bad photo. This is an actual label of Ditzler 32961 paint with ingredients. Any Ditzler paint dealer should be able to work from this formula and come up with something close in today's available paint.

Gary, tell us that's not a shot with your dig camera but a cell phone.

It is a shot with an old digital camera I had many years ago when they were new and people thought they were something.

It sure is something. Does it have a macro setting? I think Craig's needs it.

That one didn't have a macro setting. It went the way of all digital electronics. You use it a year or two, and junk it. I'm a few generations past that one, and the new high tech ones we have today will be junk in two years too.

Try it again. I uploaded an updated picture to my server.
