Paint color

Hello, I have a 2010 22FB JayFlight, I was wondering if anyone knows what color code or name of the gray that runs along the bottom of the trailer, also where I may purchase some touch up paint. Thanks rich

First of all gerbs0 - welcome to the forum! Glad you found us. If you get a second, come on over to the new member forum and introduce yourself.

As far as the color - good question. Given how colors vary and fade over time, you might have to do a little trial and error. I have seen touchup pens that might work well if you have a simple scratch.

If you are looking for more than that - I might suggest you email or call Jayco (contact info on jayco.com). They might be able to supply you with more info on the exact color. If you find out, please share here so others may benefit.

Thanks, I've contacted Jayco and they couldn't really help me, The technician told me Diamond Ice was the grey color, but I couldn't find it anywhere on line, Our local Jayco dealer told me the white was Ford white. I guess I'll have to wait and see If someone can help us. Thanks

Only Diamond Ice I could find was called "Diamond Ice Pearlcoat" and looks like it was used on Harley's. Not sure if that is what you are looking for or not, but the PPG code is 37056. I think you can get touchup paint mixed like that at most automotive body shops.

re-paint

thank you, I'm going to a local auto paint supply store, they told me they could mix up the PPG 37056 Diamond Ice (grey) paint for me, they sell it in 2oz. touch up bottles for $9, this is a water based paint, so you will need to add a clear coat to it, I'm also going to prime the area first,the spot I'm trying to cover is about the size of a quarter. I was trying to remove a spot of Dicor sealant which got on the gray paint, I used Goof off to try and get the sealant off, it worked, but it also took off some of the gray paint, I tried it on the white paint and there was no effect, so go figure, thanks for your help. I'll let you know how it matches.

Diamond Ice

Hello, the Diamond Ice color is a little dark compared to the original color. I had a small spot to cover and used it any way, plus added clear coat. It's amazing that we can't get touch up paint from Jayco.

Smile color for Jayco

I just recieved a response fron Jayco customer service, they sent me this email:
Thank you for contacting Jayco customer service.
I did some research and found that we receive the sidings for most of our units pre-painted. I have been told that the grey is called Diamond Ice; itís a special mix for Jayco produced by DuPont. The white is a 1992 Ford white. Because we receive our siding pre-painted your local dealership will not have part numbers for the paint.

I hope this will help those looking to try and get touch up paint, I would try a auto paint supply to see if they can mix some up for you.

more info.

Thank you for the email and the question. Sorry to hear of the issue with the paint. It may prove to be a better match if you were to take a sample in to the paint store but here is the information I have.
The color is called a Diamond Ice and it was a Finish Master Color, and the paint type was a Centari. I do not know if this will help you or not. We have found that color matching works best sometimes as the paint can fade slightly.

Go to a highend auto body shop.. they should have a digital paint reader.. they place this on the paint and it gives the formula for making an exact match.. taking into account fade and everything... most will then make up touch up or a spray can for you...

Does anyone know what who makes the 1992 FORD White Paint for the panel. My door is faded (yellow) on my 1998 fifth wheel and I want to match it to the white on the rest of the trailer panels. Is it Dupont. Centuri, Base Clear? Not a paint expert, just trying to help the body shop out in getting the right match of the paint as close as I can. Thanks..
