Trillium Paint Colour

Has anyone in British Columbia found a match for the Trillium paint colour ( 1980 Jubilee ) that can be sourced locally.

I just need a touch up quantity for some little nicks and chips before I wax.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Peter

If you have an Iphone or Ipad you can down load Benjamin Moore Color Capture app. Take a picture and it will tell you the matching Benjamin Moore color number.

The best I can offer is a color match for a 1978 Trillium. Would it be the same? Exterior paint match for 1978 Trillium

Don't know if you found one but I found a great match at Home Hardware for a cream Trillium - spray can, gloss rv white, Weather Shield Rust coat. I couldn't believe how well it matched.

Thanks for the feedback kootenaigirl ! Coincidentally, I was in Cloverdale Paint today and whilst they didn't have a paint product for fibreglass gelcoat the person that I was talking too mentioned 'RV white'...... hmmm!

Prior to this I had gathered a bunch of paint chips and found the closest one to my trailer colour, I took this to Lordco and found an automotive 'touch up' pen that looked close. I'll try it tomorrow and see what it looks like. I didn't want to use a spray can as some of the chips need to be 'filled' a little and the 'touch up' paint has more body to it than a spray. However, if this 'touch up' doesn't work I might have to fill the chips with something and try the spray colour you mention over it.

My trillium is a cream or 'Ivory' colour. Thanks for taking the time to reply,

Peter

Peter, if you could please, every paint can, paint pen, spray can.. not only has a color name... but a color number. If you'd post what works for you... by brand/name/number that would certainly be helpful to others.
