    My dad's Miller BlueStar 2E had the paint fade and start flaking off. He used Krylon Ford Blue to repaint it. At the time, the paint was an almost exact match for the Miller Blue then. Now, the Krylon Ford Blue does appear to be somewhat darker. Here are some pictures of the unit in question.

    Thank goodness, it's not just me.

    Spent a good little while sanding off a layer of the craptastic krylon paint after just about ruined my toolbox. Went to Lordco and picked up some Dupli Colour, that stuff sprays very nicely too.

    The 12oz spray can part number is correct and can still be purchased through any Miller Distributor. The quart can was recently discontinued but Dupont now has it available through their distributors. The Dupont paint code for it is C5885.

    If you want the right color I would go the Dupont route unless it is just touchup then get a few spraybombs

    That would be GM/Isuzu Blue. If anyone needs the numbers, I have them at my shop.
