PPG Two Stage HG formula

Supplied by Neil Hoppe (Franklinair)

Here's what my paint shop gave me for PPG Global, Base coat:

D777_______1646.6grams
D740_______2669.0grams
D767_______3258.1grams
D772_______3760.6grams
D759_______4072.7grams
D753_______4102.2grams
D790_______4110.7grams
This is for a BaseCoat/ClearCoat application, based on the original Highland Green single stage formula from long ago.
Let me know how you make out, or if you need more info.

Thanks for the info Mike. As you suggested I also created a new "Paint" section here in the Restoration Reference forum. I'll move this thread there now.

Took a look at it a bit closer. The ratios/percentage for each base color are the same, so some variation of total batch quantity for some reason... so the same mix!

D777 GREEN 365 365 40.06% 40.06% 1646.6 40.06% 40.06%
D740 BLACK 226.6 591.6 24.87% 64.93% 2669 24.87% 64.93%
D767 FINE AL. 130.6 722.2 14.33% 79.26% 3258.1 14.33% 79.26%
D772 CRS. AL. 111.4 833.6 12.23% 91.48% 3760.6 12.22% 91.48%
D759 MATT BS 69.2 902.8 7.59% 99.08% 4072.7 7.59% 99.08%
D753 WHITE 6.5 909.3 0.71% 99.79% 4102.2 0.72% 99.79%
