Anybody have a 5th gen with factory paint code 181 and willing to post up some pics of it?

That's the colour on my door tag, but somehow my car left the factory dark blue-green. It's due for a ton of body work and subsequent repaint, so I was thinking of changing the colour to match the tag.

It's that light silvery blue, correct? My '91 dealers' brochure calls it Ice Blue Metallic, and the websites I've checked say Bluish Silver Poly or Silver Metallic. Anyway, if anyone else has it, a picture would be awesome.

:laugh:

I think the Alltrac I bought today has a few body parts in that color. I'll have to get a few pics in a day or so.

And sadly enough, its easier to get a GT-Four in Canada than it is an all-trac.

Yeah, I checked toyotareference.com. They don't list the code at all -- closest they have for the 5th gen is 182 - Bluish Grey Metallic.
PPG's website agrees that 181 is Silver Metallic, and I'd be pretty inclined to trust them, but this place
http://www.tcpglobal.com/aclchip.aspx?image=1991-toyota-pg01.jpg
has a scan of a PPG paint chip saying it's bluish silver poly. I'm getting conflicting info, so that's why I was hoping someone'd have a picture of a car with the same code.

Maybe I should just say 'screw factory colours,' and pick the first thing on the shelf that looks halfway decent and paint it that, lol.
