Does anyone have current paint codes. I'm trying to match the M-14073, IM -1979 Garnet Red color. My local paint shop doesn't have much luck.

Hi Lee, from my experience the only way to get to a good match between the new paints and the old codes is to find someone who still knows how to mix paints by sight. The materials have changed so much over the years it is nearly impossible to work with the old formulas except to give a painter a starting point. This has been my experience, do others agree?

Thanks Bill,

That's what I'll do. There is a PPG paint store close by and they suggested I bring them something with the color on it.
