Trying to nail down correct colour for my '32 yellow wheels. First of all, is it "cream medium" or "medium cream"? Secondly, I found codes (PPG and Dupont) but the same numbers for '32 and '33 showed a completely different yellow chip. '33 was almost tan instead of yellow). Did the color change in those years? Also, my local paint guy can't find samples for cars that old. Anyone have any luck finding actual samples? I would like to powder coat the wheels. Is the powder available anywhere? Any help appreciated. Thanks

After I painted my rims with this color, I was fortunate enough to park next to Tom Meleo's 1933 which had Cream Medium rims too. The exact same formula during the early years. But -- the cool thing was that Tom's car was absolute original in every way -- AND it had been stored indoors for nearly it's entire life. My rim color and his MATCHED PERFECTLY!!! So I was confident that the code was a correct match to the original.
