Hi just been to order up the most beautiful split colour ever and my paint maker couldnt do it. I also tried two other shops and they too could not match the colour.
two of them had patterns for a 1984 vw collarado bordeaux red but im told this is not the same colour as the split colour.
Someone said i could get away with the 1984 colour, but i know it is not 100% correct, so this is not an option!

Does anybody know where i can get the formula for the paint, or indeed any one local to me (North Essex/ Suffolk) that can match/supply the colour?

Kind Regards

Lee ,when i struggled to match the ivory for my side panels i contacted Glasurit in London(well i think High Wycombe area actually).they actually faxed me the formular.
The only trouble is the formular only made sense to a Glasurit stockist that had a Glasurit mixing machine.
Glasurit were originally the suppliers to V W.
But if someone can lend you a sample of the paint i'm sure any good paint shop can scan it.
I had to match the paint on my '47 due to shipping damage,i got a perfect match by taking s hub cap along to the paint shop,they messed about a bit and got it perfect.

Yes, they used Glasurit. I painted two splits this color and I am looking at the paint can now. I used single-stage Glasurit 'Line 22'. They go by weight. They start out with 981.3 grams of 'MO/3.5'-base. Then go to 1359.2 with 'M201'. Then go to 2530.4 gr with 'M26'. Then go to 3879.7 with 'M30'. This is for a gallon. I know the three colors are Deep Ruby, Deep Black, and Orange. And the base is clear. I don't know which, however. Good luck.

Lee,
To get exact original paint formula, the VW museum reccomends you get in touch with BASF in Germany.
Just email your request and you will get your paint formula sent by them to you as a PDF.
Contact:
theo.koetter@basf.com
or alternatively if he's not around:
astrid.luering@basf.com
Kind regards,
Nicolas.

I believe Glasurit is part of BASF, they're the OEM supplier to VW

Lee,
I have a NOS heater cable and knob for a 1949-only model.
It the transition type between the all-round pre-May 1949 black knob and the early 1950 T-shaped one. This one is slightly oval in shape and has two cable coming out of the base. It is also black with a white 'H' on top of it.
Let me know if you need it.
Regards,
Nicolas.

I've just tried that link and it seems to be working now.
If anyone has any more information please let me know.

Hi sorry for the major delay ive been away working for a while.
Thanks for taking the time to supply a picture. i have this cable, but the plastic is ivory not black like yours. I cant remember if i need the ivory or black for my standard model?
Anyway do you have a price in mind for it, thats if you havn't already sold it?

regards lee
