RAL number for Frankia white
I'm guessing that my van won't see its annual outing to Greece this year so I have decided to do some work reviving the paint where it has deteriorated. One side, and the rear end, probably had the worst exposure to the sun and wind-whipped dust in Greece has become dull and when you look at it really close up, the paint has myriad tiny "scratches" so fine that they look like they may be from washing when dust/sand has built up. Anyway I have tried a variety of polishes and revivers to no avail as when I use them the fine scratches just seem to become more noticeable, so it is time to reach for the spray gun (when I have bought it!).
Does anyone know the RAL number for Frankia standard white paint? The factory kindly sent me the RAL numbers for the grey corner panels and mudguard trim, but I know how many whites there are and I have no idea how to match colours, so I figured that going back to manufacturers choice would be the best starting point. Given that the van comes on either a Fiat (as mine) or Merc chassis they perhaps chose one of the base colours used by one of those manufacturers.
