From Dan: During my rebuild I found a piece of aluminum with the aqua blue in pristine condition in a cranny. I took it into Ace Hardware for color matching and had a quart made up. After the paint dried it matched the original, at least on mine, perfectly.

took her Scotty awning in to True Value Hardware and had
it color matched. It is XO-Rust paint (which is exclusive to True Value Hardware); use Xylene for thinning, 1 part thinner, 3 parts paint. This formula was verified by Nancy. The formula for one gallon of Scotty Aqua, which matches the color used in the original awnings (a bit darker than original siding aqua)

From Pat Bremer, owner of one of the "new" Scottys: A fellow new generation Scotty owner gave me the paint code they were using on the new Scotties, which he requested from the Scotty builder at the time. I've noticed the color tends to change hue depending on the lighting conditions. Sometimes it looks a little more greenish, other times it looks a little more true aqua. That's ours in my profile pic. But for anyone wanting that color, here's the formula. It's a one stage paint:
Below is the paint formula you requested for the Sierra-100 Turquoise.
This is a quart formula made in Sherwin Williams Automotive paint line
Toner Amount (grams non-cumulative)
The "gold" color on 1973 and later aqua and white Scottys
From Tammy Goodrich: we found a really close match to the gold. It's by Valspar color is called Hubbell House Golden Maize Satin Finish and it is in spray cans at Lowes, or other places that carry Valspar spray cans
Spray can paints
Ron reports that Krylon Blue Ocean Breeze is a close (slightly lighter) match to the original Scotty aqua. Tammy reports that Valspar Exotic Sea is also a close (slightly darker) match.
