MY air filter paint code

I know this is a bit odd but I am interested in finding out the Subaru paint code that suits the Bluey colour that the MY air filter is painted in.
I could repaint it something else I guess or try to match it up with random Blue colours but, hey, if a job is worth doing it is worth doing well.
I have a later model filter unit that has the auto/vacuum hot air intake and a million other emission hose/pipes and I thought I would modify the filter and take out all those late 80's pipework that isn't relevant to my 82 model.
Kind of a cute project I guess and I need to get a life (just getting in there before someone else does)

Cliff, can't give you the Subaru code, but Pontiac blue is quite close.





The best way to do it would be to have it powder coated - but then you have the trouble of finding the colour which is why I went with the pressure packs. Some people have trouble with the paint cracking but I haven't put the tappet bolts in yet to see what happens.

That Blue is pretty close isn't it !
In regards to the Engine Enamel, does it need to go onto bare metal or does it need an undercoat or primer ?

Cliff, the instructions recommend sp148 a grey primer for better adhesion and colour consistency. I applied it to the rocker covers in the photo. (I paid $15 - $20 a can) It then takes a week between coats. There is also a clear coat but I am happy with them how they are. They still need to go into the oven to be cured so they are chemically resistant, but I doubt this will change the finish.

I was looking too for the Subaru colour code but found Idasho at USMB doing his in this colour and thought it was nice enough.

Thanks everyone, when time permits I will carefully remove all the non necessary pipework, weld it up and give the painting a go.
