I gave Halfords a try and no luck. Very helpful but computer said no.
They could offer me a metallic Zircon Bue which I'm sure would look very nice but not at the moment!
I then went to a local factor who seemed to be able to make up the paint but had run out of "Fast Black" which is one of the four colours making up Zircon Blue. The others being White,Fast Blue and Permanent Green. The cost, a pricey £20 for 250mls!
Before I went out, I used search to double check the proportions of each ingredient but the late John Andrews (Dorset Flyer) had posted details of every colour except ZB!
The paint label in my car gives the Rover code for the paint and three numbers are given for 2oz, 1 pint and 1 gallon. They are 366591,366506 and 366507 respectively.
Did anybody retain the Halfords chitty so that they can supply a code or something that I can supply to Halfords?

There is no easy match for an old paint job expecialy Zurcon Blue as it tends to go more Green over the years If you have a "GOOD" Auto Trade paint supplier with a Spectrophotometer you will get a good match not 100%! but you may be lucky
