OK people who knows the modern day RAL number for the early blue drab USA and serial numbers on Jeeps or more to the point Jeep "Bantam" Trailers....waiting to stencil Michelles Jeep trailer but have stalled at paint number and a source...

Isnt it more likely to have a 'FS.' number than a RAL?

Be carful with the colors printed from the computer!
The color may vary!
Only the official color charts from a paint store has the right colors ....

A while back I bought an aerosol can of blue /grey paint that was recommend by a guy off the G503 jeep site, it is a can that has been mixed, and it has the following wording, PANTONE 5415C. CELL MATT.
Dont know if this helps ! :?:

LLoyd, The PANTONE no is all that is needed - the rest is CELLULOSE MATT (meaning the make up & Finish). Any decent paint supplier should be able to mix it up. Surely it should be an ANA colour?

FS Colours:

Try this for a conversion using model paints:
http://www.ipmsstockholm.org/colorchart ... rts_us.htm

Just type in the PANTONE no here to find the shade:
