RAF Blue/Grey paint

Does anyone know where I can get RAF Blue/Grey paint in the US? I could color match it off a small bit that I can bring in from the UK but might be easier if someone sold it stateside.

My Series I. It' the best looking color for a S1 in my opinion. Plus I already own a green Defender so the Series will be going RAF Blue.

Thanks Keith, sadly this doesn't help, I have the FC, BS, ICI, etc codes but they all seem to be paints sold in the UK. Might just get a little bottle of it shipped here and have to match it.

Sadly this link doesn't help much except on more recent paints

Put this one in the just for fun land rover section
http://pc.dupont.com/hcl/servlet/com...ype=Land+Rover

BS381-633 seems to be the code that brings up raf blue

BS381 - 633 RAF BLUE GREY COLOUR is the colour I used on my d90 when I rebuilt it, not sure if that paint code transfers to your side of the pond, heres a photo....it can look different in different lights, mine is full gloss 2 pack, but on a Series I think a satiniser added would look great for a slightly matte finish.....

Paint is paint. I would think that if you have the color code any proper auto paint supplier should whip up a batch you want. A paint code is a paint code the only thing you have to keep in mind is that over time the paint companies change the color of the paint code so you have to make sure you also have the year range for that paint code.
