Last question of the day....

Post by Rogerogrant » Tue Aug 16, 2016 10:05 pm

...since I've posted a number of others in different sections! :lol:

The EMC/Quantum paint website says to contact a distributor for paint chips. Boatbuilder central would be my distributor. :-)
Can I request or purchase chips, or even a copy of their colour chart?
Thanks!

The color chart they have provided doesn't have actual paint samples, it is a print. the chart is available here: http://boatbuildercentral.com/emc_color_chart.pdf

Yeah, unfortunately both computer monitors and graphics like that are pretty useless for evaluating colour unless they're calibrated to a known reference. Compare Seafoam 6056 on that card to the card that's on their website for instance:

I'll email them directly and see if they'll send me a few chips.
Thanks!!
