1972 914 light yellow L 13

My options for local automotive paint stores are Sherwin Williams and PPG.
Both claim they cannot find the L 13 light yellow. Does anybody have a more correct/updated code for the only yellow color offered in 1972?
Thanks in advance.

Speedo

Suggest using the L13M, but drop the L

Had a similar issue when I spoke with my local SW store a few weeks ago looking for information on my paint color. They were finally able to find it by dropping the L.

YMMV

If I remember right this is off the top of my head and I would have to look it up. but light yellow for the years 1972 and 1973 the code number is 117.
sunflower yellow the code is L13K or 13K late 1972 and 1973
the question is for what Porsche model is this for? if your looking for a code under Porsche for say a 914 then it's a good chance it will not be listed under Porsche as the car is a VW built at the VW plant. the 914 was pretty much only sold in the states as a Porsche most every where else in the world they were sold as a VW.

light yellow

Called Finish Masters and they called it a PPG 2696 and confirmed it for both VW and Porsche for 71-74.
