        Car is advertised as being blue in colour, and I haven't been able to find a skyline with this exact colour.. Unless the lighting in the pic is off.





        This is the GTST I'm really wanting to buy, owner took down the add and garaged it for the time being. So I'm hoping it's as good as mine. Just waiting on insurance payout from last car. Frustrating process.

        If this one sells... Then next option for a 4dr is through right drive.
        I only read this page so it might be stated already but TruJDM's R32 sedan is BL0. Definitely a unique colour.

                This picture won't do much for you at the moment but just for comparison purposes the 732 color is very unique and has a ton of variants to it. I just went ahead and mixed the standard variant but in the later years Nissan made the color a lot more course (much nicer in my opinion)

                KH3 is literally just black... lol... nothing else.

                Until sprayed out properly and cleared, you won't see much difference between the two bases.

                    Nissan. I got a KH2 paint pen from there, one end is a marker bristle where you dab paint from, the other is the finishing clear.

                      I'll give them a call! I didn't think nissan would stock stuff like that.

                        Does anyone know if the paint code 326 crystal white is compatible with the 240sx super white (also 326)

                        Possibly same color, just different name? :3

                        I called nissan and they said they didn't have it. Can't seem to find it online either

                        EDIT - I found skyline on hte dupli-color website but 326 isn't listed... Any suggestions?

                          There's a parts shop around here that mixes factory colors for custom touch up paint. I also had some done there while waiting for the nissan stick.

                          Try your luck at some automotive parts store.

                            I found this chart online... Seems to have a few Nissan Skyline codes on it... My "DNO" code is on it and the swatch looks accurate to the colour of my car.

                            I'm sure MKIV can cofirm or deny the accuracy of this chart.

                            Anyway I thought it may help some people here.

                              Dupli-color products serve a unique purpose and have a variety of cool items, however I would stay away from this brand when it comes to attempting to match an oem color. The cost of having your specific oem paint being made up at a local paint shop is not much.

                              Your Nissan/Infiniti "super white" (326) and Subaru's "crystal white" are basically the same color.



                              There are several alternates to each color though. The majority of oem colors will have alternates due to the fact that not all cars are produced in the same region/country/plant.

                              In your case, your "super white" is simply a solid white with some extra ingredients:



                              A bit blurry, but as you can see, your super white is mainly white with the addition of some black, yellow oxide, etc. The extra ingredients just help the white to avoid getting that nasty yellow peeling color you see on older cars from being exposed to UV rays.

                              Hope that helped.
