Vespa Paint Codes

Unfortunately the information out there only matches original colors to "Max Meyer" paint codes which don't exist (as far as I know) in the USA...but I figured I'd post them anyway. If you have a color you have used that has been a good match, let me know the manufacturer and code and I will add it to the specific model as a recommendation.

Otherwise if Max Meyer paints are not available in your area click the image below for a spreadsheet from moden PPG Paints showing cross references for the correct color in today's PPG Paints.
