So , does anyone have a usable paint code for Mk2 GS160? Max Meyer no longer around and I heard the PPG version isn't the right shade.....I also heard that Mini Pepper White was a spot on match......any ideas?

I would try the TCP Global / Auto Color Library.

When I needed a pint of the original Grigio Ametista color for my 1964 Vespa VNB, I called them and they had the original paint chip for my color and it was a perfect match. When I restored my 1962 Triumph TR4, I also ordered the paint thru them and it was a perfect match to the original paint up behind the dash board.

My scooter had been sitting in a garage for nearly 50 years, so the paint was not faded. This garage find scooter was only run for 2 or 3 years when the owner passed away and it was stored away until I bought it 2 years ago with 1761 original miles.

Auto Color Library website show the chips for most cars, but for some reason they do not have the color chips posted for Vespa scooters, but they do have them.

You can get their phone number or email address at - http://www.autocolorlibrary.com

In addition to the color they will want to know what type paint you are looking for, Acrylic Lacquer, Acrylic Enamel, or one of the newer paints. I got Acrylic Lacquer for my 64 and the color and finish were a perfect match for airbrush touch-ups after using rubbing compound and polish.
