Are these kaiser paint colors correct for hubcaps?

I am rebuilding some kaiser baby moons. I have been searching for the correct colors for the hubcaps. I found this site that has the different colors found on Kaiser rigs. I am trying to match the orange and gold.
http://paintref.com/cgi-bin/colorcod...page=2&rows=50
Is the Indian ceramic 332 the same as what is on the hubcaps?

And the gold, Prairie gold 419, is it the correct gold? Is this a metallic?

I have a wanted ad for some NOS ones to hopefully save me from the paint work. Till then I will head down this road. Does anyone know about these colors? Got a pic of a rig in these colors?

Cheers..

That would be great Kenall. It is hard to tell from a paint chip if it is right.
Thank you.

Most people would call Indian Ceramic pink if they did not know the right name. It has an orange cast when it's fresh, but fades to a very pink color. Definitely not what you want for the hub caps. Just FYI.

Since you're planning drivetrain mods I'm guessing you're not entering a 100 points correct concourse show. Drop into a hobby shop that sells Testor paint for car models. They have a great selection of colors in itty bitty glass bottles. You'll find close enough colors. Use a good brush and thin the paint enough so it flows well and you're good. I'm not a painter but I can color within the lines and I've brought old emblems back to like new condition with Testor's model paint.

A syringe works a bit better than a brush, but +1 to this.

I had just read up on the syringe method. Good stuff. I had posted a wanted ad for some NOS hubcaps. I have a lead on some and hopefully it will save me from the paint work. It would still be good to know the colors as I have always wanted to be able to match them. Plus I have a few emblems I need to spruce up a bit. So this is great. Thanks for helping me out guys.

Joe, This will be a stock build. Not concours but hopefully super clean and shiney... My 69 X model has a few mods. The biggest thing it needs is assembly. Down 10 years now.

Well we are getting close anyway.... I may pass on the NOS ones as I might be able to use the repaired ones I have now that the paint is showing up. I am trying to find the path of least resistance.

Hey Kaiser... I have a set of 5 NOS Kaiser Jeepster stainless steel baby moon hub caps for my '67 vert that are still sitting in the boxes and an NOS grille badge for Kaiser also. I used those to replicate the paint colour on my V6 door badges. I couldn't find the correct paint anywhere so I did the Testors paint trick too with the little glass bottles....had to mix the colours but got a perfect match. The stuff is enamel and very durable. Only problem is the amount you need for hub caps is like huge compared to my little plaques. It can be done.
If you need the colour I could email you some photos of the caps as they have never seen the light of day and thus not faded.
18 Cherokee....that cap on Australian eBay is exactly the same as the 5 that I have. Sure is tempting to have another spare..lol.
Dan

The more I look at those caps, the more I think they are extremely close to Jeep's '76 CJ 7, "Burnt Orange".

I don't need the paint colors. I have a couple sheds full of kaiser parts and I have enough to see what the color should be. I see the gold in the duplicolor is off a bit. I was wondering about how well the testors paint would hold up after time and use. Funny I have a 68 commando here that is gold color and pretty close. It is not it but it is close.
I need to finish the hubcaps and give the paint a shot.
Thanks for the offer to send the paint colors. I should be good to go with what I have here.

Does anyone know the Testor paint colors that are close to the original colors for the jeep emblems?
