    I’m working on a Johnson from 1972, painted in a sort of goldish-green, and an Evinrude from about the same time painted in a darker bluish-green. Are there any readily available spray paints with even an approximate match to these colors? I don’t need an exact match as I’m only painting some accessories and just don’t want them to stand out too much.

    I’m painting a 56 evinrude with reprotint paints. Great match for my motor. Maybe they have a color to match yours.

    Here’s the list of available colors from NY Marine, including yours. Very high quality paint in exact factory color match.


    1954 Johnson CD-11
    1956 Johnson RD-18

    1959 Johnson QD-20

    Any auto paint supplier can match whatever color sample you bring them and put n a rattle can. For instance, the guy I go to does it and charges $20. About what Reprotint and others charge. Your experience may vary..

    That Johnson color is unique for 1972, I think…The earlier colors were a darker green. There were two darker Evinrude blue colors prior to 1973, 69-70 was kind of a flat colored blue, whereas 71-72 was a glossier slightly lighter colored blue. Both of these colors are still available from OMC/BRP, although I have seen many errors in their current color listings….D

    Please list your model numbers for help. OMC did list part numbers and PPG color codes in some parts catalogs. Bluish green on a Evinrude does not sound familiar in 1972.
