Paint codes Foretravel

I have the paint codes for my U320. They do not mean anything to the body shop repairing my coach. Are they Foretravel numbers? Does any one know how to convert them to a real paint number or am I Stuck buying the paint from Foretravel?

Check with James Stallings, owner of Xtreme Paint and Graphics in Nacogdoches, Texas. James ran the paint shop at Foretravel when your coach was painted.

I think Glasurit/BASF might be the paint brand, but James will have the right info for you.

The body shop doing the repairs if their worth their salt, will be able to computer match your colors on the side where the repair is being done. Unless the coach is brand new the paint will have faded, and the original paint will no longer match. The ONLY way to ensure a positive match of colors is to have them computer matched and mixed.

Foretravel gave me the information I needed to find the paint. The codes are BASF numbers. The paint they use is BASF Diamont Fleet Line. I called a BASF dealer and he Had them mixed by the time I got there. Thanks everyone for your help.

Foretravel uses a different line now than they did when your coach was painted, so that confirms they used to use Glasurit when James Stallings ran the shop and now use Diamont. Clear on your coach is likely Glasurit as well. Google both and you'll see some comments on Corvette and BMW forums regarding each.
