Paint code for cobalt blue?

Postby Arya2.0S » Mon Sep 03, 2018 11:46 pm

I need to do some paintwork to my car and I just wanted to make sure I have the correct paint code.
Is cobalt blue xsc 1271? Just wanted to make sure I don't have my letters mixed up lol.

Hi,
I've just checked on paints4u, and the paint code for Cobalt blue is indeed XSC1271.
There appears to be two colour codes listed - 3 1 T3 and 5 1 N3.
If there is a place near you that mixes automotive paint, I would recommend going that route. Just take along a part of the car in the colour you want and they should be able match the paint exactly.

I hope that helps.

Andrew.

You could try Morellis in Wickford about getting the right paint supplied to match. 01268 730880 A friend in the trade speaks highly of their mixing
