Sherwin-Williams Yellow paint

Recommended Posts

JCS
Got paint in the mail yesterday and opened it up and looked at it. Looks o.k. but I want to see it in the daylight. I joined this club and coorsponded with KENT several times over AC yellow. I had several batches made from formula on the Internet and posted here and have went the scanning route also. I called KRYLON, DUPONT, old AC dealers but never though to call Sherwin-Williams. I hope my search is over and I can finally get started on my B-10.

I painted my B-10 with a quart that I had mixed at the Sherwin Williams automotive paint supplier. It has the same code as that which is listed in the paint section of this forum - I think it is 922983?? Anyway, I also had a gallon of cream mixed by the same folks, using a paint code that I got out of an old 300 series parts manual. The yellow looks about as close as you are going to get, while the cream appears a little too dark. I used them both anyway with hardener and am very happy with the results.

JCS, I had my local Sherwin Williams store do a color match of AC yellow in their B54 Industrial Enamel product. I just picked it up today. I had them split the gallon into three quart containers besides the original gallon can after shaking it well. If anyone is interested, I'll sell them a quart for $9.00 plus shipping. (My cost was $35.94 for the gallon.) I'll include data sheets or you can download them at www.sherwin.com. I have two quarts available as Dennis McGill wants one. For Information Purposes:(Gallon Formula) Base Used: B54 Y 37 "Safety Yellow" Tints Added: B1=1/32, R2=13/32+1/64, N1=1/32, R1=26/32 I had it matched to a seat bracket from my B207 (made in Lexington, SC). The matching surface was never exposed to sunlite. Paul

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
