New Color

I'm painting my wife's Jeep and she wants it to be a different color than how it came from the factory - does anyone have a color code/chip sheet from PPG or someone else?

I have tried all of the local auto stores and noone has a paint department that has the book with paint chips in it - just the book that tells you the code to a certain year. What I need is the book with the factory color codes and associated color chip of what it looks like so that we can pick a new color.

Thanks for you help.

I would go to ppg's website, look for dealers, then garb a phone and start calling. Weird that you couldn't find color chips, My 4 local places all have some sort of paint chips. Look for stores specifically selling only auto paint. Good luck

No problem. There's a zip search dealer finder on our web site so if you need any more you can check that out.

Our customers are mostly PBE stores not parts stores so most have what you seek.
