          Also have question for you Shawn or anyone else, do you have the codes for the 74 and 75 TXs also? I do not think they are the same?

            Midnight Blue is a diffecult color to find ,1975 to 83, If Shawn has the correct paint code ,I would need it as well ,because I've went through alot of different codes and so far none are correct , I have used a 78 ford blue (which one book suggested) .it is close but not correct ,and most have Metalic in it which is wrong.I did find another color which is the closest as far as I can tell ,the only thing that should be used is a black primmer ,which is expensive. believe it or not , I can get the same darkness but midnight blue has a little purple it in .

            I do have a good color for 1973 to 74 ,(chev blue ,I think it's early 80's color) and have the correct code for light blue early Polaris 65 to 71 .

            Still didn't find code for 72 ,I need to mix my own (color on it's own) the only early Polaris with metalic.

            Just my experiance.

              Thanks Earl, will see when Shawn reposts the code, so you think it will need the black primer first? never seen that stuff, I assume the grey does not look as good? Did not know the 75 TX was the midnight blue colour, got rid of some a year ago, thought I was not in need of it.....

                      No, Of what I was told that the midnight blue for the 75 TX, (and up) which Shawn suggests, plus fella here want to redo his 73 Starfire, I am thinking maybe that paint will be the 74 TX colour?

                          Well I think the Polaris gurus here will help, PKing, Hal Armstrong, and the prez, so far even the gurus in the states are having a problem, different opinions for sure??



                          Also earnhardnorth had this link



                          I found this ppg# 14587 at VS.com

                          Also for the "midnight blue, fella said

                          Find your local boat dealership that is an Evinrude E-tec dealership. The E-tec blue is about a 98% match, part #351907. This is in an aerosol that's lays down very nice.

                          I will try that on the 75TX....
