    I usually go through boat manufacturers/dealers since Paul at Minicraft of Florida does not go by serial numbers. If you call your manufacturer they will tell you the name of colors by serial #, either order through their dealer or call Paul and have at least the year and name of metal flake formula given by boat manufacturer and also it may require more homework. Make sure to describe color as well since formulas change over years and he does not get record of this. At times he has not been able to offer me colors his website says he should and formulas changed and he wasn't aware. He took flake back but couldn't help me further. Dealers are also cheaper I would call them first. Minicraft is good but sometimes it takes more digging to find certain colors, especially if boat is older than a few years. If anyone needs help and cant get find colors through dealer or Minicraft contact me and I can probably help.

    There is no manufacturer to call for Sprint. The have been out of business 10 years.
