Triumph Paint Codes

Q: I have a 1974 Triumph Trident. I am getting ready to paint the gas tank, and I was wondering if you know the paint number for the gold paint on the tank. I would like to match the paint as close to the original color as possible.Jim Tutino/via email

A: The guy to contact about Triumph paint codes would be Don Hutchinson. He has modern formulations to match the colors of the old paints that are no longer available. I got my paint for my 1964 Triumph T100 from him a few years ago. Check out his website. MC
