Post Paint Color/Paint Code Location
I'm getting ready to paint my 928. When I purchased the car the dealer told me that it was special order from the factory and the person that ordered it decided not to purchase the car. The original color of the car was blue except when looking at the car from different angles it would turn purple. I got tired of the purple side of this color so when I painted the car I matched the blue but left out the purple. I want to return the car to original. So here's my question's 1. Where is the paint code located on the 928? 2. Does anybody know if the color I have described have a factory name? 3. From what I have been able to find, in 1983 Porsche had a color called Blau Metallic 70 (M) POR84 (this is off of the TCP Global website). It appears to be the right shade of blue but I can't tell if it has the purple tint. Any help would be appreciated.

I looked on the door jamb yesterday for the paint code. The only decals there are the white bar code and the long silver (although if I remember right I think mine is black) VIN decal. I'm not where I can check my owners manual, I'll do that tomorrow. I didn't see a color that matched on the second link that you provided. I may have to go the kardex route if all else fails. I was hoping that somebody else had a car that was painted a similar color. Thanks for the info.
