This is starting to PMO!!!!

I have purchaced three variants of the 576 color, and none of them match! Has anyone else found this to be a problem?

Has anyone used another brand that does match, if so what was the paint code? (not OEM, but manufacturers code, ie: PPG: 4417 = OEM: 576)

Valspar maybe, or BASF?

The closest I have gotten is the PPG 4417ALTR variant in DBU. The DBC paint in the same variant is too white, WTF!!!

I could be wrong, but it's the color called "solar yellow" not "signal yellow" ?

anywho.... I heard that solar Yellow as one of the hardest colors to match.

I'll have a friend check it out.. He works at a body shop

according to the Lexus brochure... it's "solar yellow" :eek:

I guess Toyota likes to give the colors name variances to make each model "special and Unique" to themselves.

!!!

I had the same problem, my car got keyed and had to have the entire car done over. They mixed up the paint and sprayed and when it dried the paint looked like a bright neon greenish yellow, mixed it again and it came out yellow, but it definitely isnt my stock color yellow, now my door jams dont match. :pissed:

ya, the TCM was originally(?) on the 00 tundra, but it was called tunder GRAY metallic. it seems to be perfect match when i parked my car with its former color next to a friends tundra and i think (almost positive) its the same toyota/lexus code
