U-Haul CT-13 Interior Paint Color?

Hi all!

I have a U-Haul CT-13 and I'm wondering if anyone knows the original paint color, color formula or a comparable color with today's spray paints.

I'm patching some screw holes with foam and need to paint over those areas to finish the job.

Thanks!

I found Dupli Color Ford Wimbledon White comes close at least for myVT. I think they all had the same gel coat color

Tom,

Depending on how fussy you want to be, or if you might want to paint a bigger area at some point, I had pretty good luck mixing 2 different colors of Nason acrylic enamel.... neither was quite right on their own, but mixed 50/50, the combination is very close to the original gelcoat color.

My CT-13 was hit from behind, so I had a lot of fiberglass repair to do, and then had to repaint at least that portion of the interior. So I painted out to where the f/g curved, or met a window molding, etc..... and then carefully buffed the edges once it had cured for several days, and it came out pretty good. [and this enamel is pretty affordable stuff--my initial try was 2 half-pints mixed up, with some reducer bought for it as well, for $30-40]

One of the Rustoleum off-whites comes pretty close, as well, if you don't want this more complicated approach.

Tom,
small addendum to yesterday's post... I think it was "Heirloom White" [from Rustoleum] that was the color Tom Griebe and others have used, and been happy with.
FWIW,
Gary

Gary and Michael, thank you both for your responses. Looks like I have a few options to choose from which is great!
