Hi, I am about to paint my 71 GT in a shade of silverblue. I would like to stick with an Opel color. Does anybody have a nice picture of a #230 silverblue GT? I can't find one online.
One of the first GTs Opel used for ads (BO-ZN 678) seems to be this color, but then in other ads it looks monza blue (235).
Thanks for your help.

Astro Silver Metallic

Does anyone know if the paint companies (PPG) still have color recipes for our GT's? I'd like to restore mine back to the L135 Astro Silver Metallic. Has anyone painted their car this color recently and have access to the color recipe?

'Ditzler' Codes

What you need are known as 'Ditzler' Codes which tell how to mix the colours. Any half decent Auto paint shop should know about these codes.

Listed here: http://www.opelgt.com/forums/22134-post19.html for GTs'


... so much easier to search for stuff that I know is there! :)

Neil, go to Jerry's Paint and Supply Company im Sacramento. That's where many body shops (and Hot Rodders) get their paint.

I have a '74 Manta currently in the body shop for paint. I'm going with the original color (Signal Blue), which according to the site referenced in this thread is L224-14698. The guy painting my car mixes his own paint. He has a PPG paint station in the shop because he does a lot of custom airbrush art on cars and motorcycles. I gave him the paint code above, but he's been unable (thus far) to find a reference for the mix code. So how does he use this paint code to determine how to mix the paint?

OK...apparently the 14698 number is the Ditzler code? Once I told the painter this was likely a Ditzler code, he said he could probably cross-reference it. I guess most Ditzler codes are 4 digit?

I recently (last month) had some Signal Yellow mixed up by a PPG shop (basecoat/clearcoat) and they had no issues. I don't know what their database is like however. I just gave them the color name, color code, and country of origin (often Belgium has slightly different colors than Bochum, even with the same code).

Ditzler Codes

Yes, 14698 is the Ditzler Code but it is for an Acrylic Lacquer paint - 1970's paint technology. The problem is cross-referencing this number to a modern two-pot reaction lacquer.

The 'L224' is Opel's in-house colour code for Signal Blue.

However, Ditzler Codes are/were a widely used 'standard' paint coding and should give any well established paint mixer a fighting chance of getting a close colour match.

From what I've found the color I'm going for is 336 M Britischgrün British Green

This site shows the ditzler code as 44034. 336/15 would mean it has two coats (top coat base coat) for the metallic?

Also, what kind of paint should I be looking for?

Paint Fabre/Color

None of the charts or codes match the manufacturer's stamped plate on the left side under the hood of Ms. Opel :

Farbe
Color 15 701

This 15 is the exterior color - I think - anyway it is a deep green enamel probably baked on the unibody - some say British Racing Green - I honestly don't know.

The 701 is the Buckskin interior color - I think


Anyone out there with the info? Thanks in advance.

The actual Ditzler paint mixture numbers (which were represented by those 2-character codes on the firewall VIN plate) for US export Opel GT's, were listed in the March/April 2009 OMC Blitz. The source for that information, is the factory bulletins that Opel issued at the start of each model year.

You should be cautious to obtain the proper mixture code (as some similar-looking shades, like 1970's "Rallye Orange" compared to 1971's "Fireglow Orange" varied between specific model years) if you are trying to repaint a GT in its original color.

According to the Service Bulletin #69-I-02 (cited within an overall GT paint mixture compilation in the March/April 2009 OMC Blitz), the "Ditzler Enamel Intermix Formula" for the repair of Enamel Finishes for a 1969 Opel GT with Metallic Green (Code 15) paint is #DQE-44034.

There are also Enamel formulas provided for the "Rinshed-Mason" paint (#2U30032) supplier and "Dupont Dulux" (#8475D), as well as formulas for Acrylic paint (which was applied to some European-manufactured GT's).
