    A320 panel color

    I'm looking for the right panel color for the A320.
    somewhere I heard RAL 5014 was the one to go for,
    but after going to the local paintshop and doing a sample
    I think that much to (light)blue.

    now I have a color and it's almost like the OC mcdu,
    the recipe is : Flexa Base N00 WYI-1.5 WWI-30 WZI-27 WVI-0.5

    Do you think the OC mcdu color is a good reference as panelcolor for the A320 ?

    a photo of the above flexa recipe.
    I find primer+two layer paint is the minimal in blocking the light,
    next time I'll try an extra black layer.

    Re: A320 panel color

    testing a v-bit in clean acrylic gave marvelous results,
    (thanks for all the info about v-bits on this forum)
    doing it in one and a half day old paint
    made me a little

    primer, black + 2 layers of color and 3-4 days waiting makes more than a week
