White roof paint color?

I'm getting ready to paint my truck. It occurred to me that I didn't have the paint color code for the roof. I found a thread where Uncle Douglas said that the white roof color changed over time.

My truck is a 1983, but which white would look best with the Arles?


Thanks Fellas!

Earlier trucks had limestone, but the is more of a series look.

Chawton isn't as "pure" white as Alpine, it has more blue in it.

It's a cleaner white, more glossy, where Alpine is better at hiding flaws. Chawton is bright like a new refrigerator.

Really it comes down to how dark your shades are

I would say Chawton has a warmer more mellow white color, no? Both of mine aren't bright at all compared to Fuji

I noticed when I was looking over the shoulder of my buddy (with a body shop) when he was looking up PPG paint codes, there are two variations of Alpine. One appears to have just a bit more yellow in it.
Can anyone comment on this?
