Help with paint code and where to buy

So, I really like the nice blue that I found under the green on the Defender. It is a 86 model year, built in 85. I would like to repaint it back to that color while I have the front clip off for the drivetrain swap. Anybody know what color this is?


Also, and good suppliers to buy from?


Thanks in advance.

I am thinking about this one. It is Royal Blue from Eastwood. I could pair it with a Eastwood Ford Wimbleton White for the top.

The paint code for stratos blue is LRC 327. Any auto paint store should be able to make some up.

I do really like the Arles blue. Can any car paint place mix it up off of the paint code?

They should. I just has some Alpine White made up in spray cans this weekend off the 3 digit-code.

i have the same question on Stratos Blue. The LR paint code is LRC 327. My local napa paint shop has no info on this code. Any other suggestions for paint source or another code from say PPG?
