Default Imron paint used by Formula

Anybody who knows which type of Imron paint that Formula uses for the graphics ?
I want to paint parts of my boat with Imron since a friend of mine has a Formula, and the Imron paint that is still in perfect condition even though it is 14 years old. Looks like new. Even the part under water has no blisters. Pretty amazing. I have already painted a small part of my boat using Spies Hecker automotive type of paint, but it is very sensitive to physical wear from fender lines etc, so I am really disapointed with that. But looking at the Dupont web site I can see that there are several types of Imron paint, so anybody who knows the exact type that Formula uses ?

Call Formula and ask for Sue in the Paint Dept. She is extremely helpful (as is everyone at Formula). Got me sorted right out with a paint project that I had on my Formula.

I have an 87 206LS and it is in great condition other than needing new upholstery, and some love on the paint. Can anyone verify that the three colors on a Formula are not all one compound. I have been hearing many different things like the red is Imron but white and black are gelcoat. Mine isn't in bad shape just typical oxidation. Any recommendations on restoration. Plus the previous owner broke the two front windshields and replaced them with what appears to be Plexiglass( or something similar). Does anyone know where a glass replacement might be ordered or is there a marine glass supplier that would have the dimensions on hand for an order. I don't live in a place where there are boat shops. I want to make my Formula almost new. It has a new engine and has been taken pretty good care of. I live at 8000ft and the high elevation UV killed the 30 year old vinyl. But other than that I think I can make a pretty good improvement with out spending too much money.
