Default HP 500 Blue Paint

So I am refreshing both my engines,, I need an exact color match for HP 500 Blue paint,,does anyone have a paint code they have actually used that is right on to match the Merc. Blue.
This has been discussed many times,,I would like an exact color match if possible.

Thanks

Just a thought. Take a chip to your local automotive paint supply. They can put it in a scanner and give you an exact color match. Most can even put it in spray cans for you.

Go to an automotive paint supplier and have them mix it up for you. Then put it in a spray jar from your local hardware or box store.

I had some of the b8110a mixed up and wasnít 100% satisfied as it just didnít seem to be the same but I didnít have an exact side to side comparison. Next batch I had them add a touch more silver in the mix and turned out great. It at least looked much closer the merc blue powder coat I was using on same project.
