Palazzo Paint Color Formulas - Get them here

I had some bodywork done to my 2014 Palazzo and the body shop made several unsuccessful attempts to match the gold color. I have the Black Canyon paint scheme. The service center contacted Thor and were told the gold color is Harvest Gold and the formula is B2. That didn't work either. The repair facility was using the same paint brand that Thor uses, the Sikkens brand.

I decided to call Thor's parts department and was told the gold formula is 'Ford B2'. My gut instinct told me to research further. So, I called the one person at Thor who I know could get me the correct information, Tom Overton!

He referred me to the company that paints all of their units. When I called them, I learned that they create custom paint colors that utilize the B2 as a base. Apparently, B2 is a very translucent color that would require 15 coats of paint before it would provide the necessary coverage. So, they have been authorized by Thor to make a custom version of the B2. They call it 'Thor B2', which doesn't mean much to anyone outside of that company who may be trying to match it.

They were very happy to provide me with a chart that contains all the paint formulas for all the Palazzo color schemes, not just mine. I think this is a very useful document should you need it.

My Palazzo came with three little sample paint containers, however, they have disappeared, possibly used by someone at the service center. I had left them in the middle console up front. There is also a sticker in one of the cabinets with the paint color formulas. Tom Overton now has this document in his possession, and with any luck, all his peers do as well. Should you ever run into this problem, you'll have an easier time than my service folks have had until today.

Note: The formula only works with Sikkens brand paint. Any other brand won't match.

If you want to buy this paint already mixed to the correct forumula, you can buy it from the same place they do (in Elhart) here:

Rollie Williams Paint Spot – Automotive Department
574-262-3174

I will try to add the file here. It is an Excel file. If you have any problems with it, please let me know and I'll email it.

Hope this helps.

Am I doing something incorrect?

Thanks, Gary. These I guess are just the 2014 colors -- Galleria is not listed.

Please note the Silver Leaf base color changed as of 9/25/2012. If yours was painted prior to that, this color formula will not work for you.
