RE: {Chrysler 300} Gauguin Red



At our Elkhart Lake, WI meet in 2016, I was humbled when Gil Cunningham used his official paint swatches and decided my Gauguin Red C was the closest match, at least when compared with Bob Nitz’s and Keith Boonstra’s Gauguin Red C’s when we  parked  together at the meet.  Now maybe Gil was just being diplomatic and told that to each of us, but although it was very unofficial, coming from Gil it felt like an award.   There is no doubt  I would have lost any other comparison with Bob’s  and Keith’s C’s.

My originally white C, was bronze and partially restored when I got it around 1988, and in about 1992, when it was ready for paint, I decided on Gauguin Red and I invited my nephew to visit and paint my car in my garage.

I don’t know if this helps but the paint I got (from a local auto parts store) was a PPG Deltron Acrylic Urethane (DAU).  The label that was added to the can has ‘DAU 61164 H LOX.   Just a single stage paint; no clear coat.

Just a voice from the past, but when I sold my 300C rag to Jeff Miklas, many years ago, I sent the remains of the GR that I had made, including the formula for making more on the can.  Jeff?, still got the can?  Most agreed it was spot on for the hue.
