Andrews Powder Coating

If TLC is tight lipped about the color you might try contacting Andrew's Powder Coating in Chatsworth, CA 818-700-1030. As far as I know they are still doing the powder coating for TLC. They service a lot of high end clients and are a great bunch of guys. Had them coat a couple of things for me in the past and their prices seem to be pretty reasonable. Their website is worth a gander just for the eye candy. They can do some amazing stuff with powder.

Vintage Off-road has a 40 that is painted to emulate the icon powdercoat. Didn't get a reply when I asked about the paint code wondering if anyone knows

I'm sure Jonathan would tell you if you asked him. I don't think he's afraid that you'd be competition for him.
I'm sure he is not worried about competition but probably doesn't want a bunch of want-a-bees running around out there in the same color.

I'm willing to bet the paint is the only thing that's the same as a real ICON.
It's probably Rustoleum rattle-can primer.
Good change he wouldn't know since he just buys and sells these things. Has been know in the past to have a the newer owner paid to have it shipped from the PO location and never see it in person himself. I know he has been importing the last few years those I believe he ships to his place in AZ. Those he does some things to but don't believe any are frame off restorations.

This could very well be true but I think that this specific 40 is under Vintage Offroad's "custom" builds which makes me think Greg would know the paint code/color.
