Anyone know what brand of paint Serotta uses?
I'd like to know the Imrom equivalent of Sapphire Blue.

At least I've settled on blue

I think they use PPG because they use their codes. That is standard high-end stuff for cars.

Serotta offers Sapphire Blue as a standard color. Some dealers have Serotta sample tubes, although I think now Serotta employs sample metal squares, which aren't as nice. Anyway, I would try to visit a Serotta dealer that has some tubes and the newer squares and see what you like. I've seen the Cobalt Blue and the Sapphire Blue, and my notes say(and I remember as well) that the Sapphire Blue looked darker than the Cobalt Blue, which is the opposite of what they look like in the catalog. I remember being surprised. Hopefully, a forum member who is a dealer will chime in to confirm or deny that.

Good luck.
