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
Right, probably talking to myself as usual but for anyone interested the Halford's code for Zircon Blue is Rover 5004.
The actual mix comes out a bit light for my car so I've bought the four base colours as well so that I can make up my own particular shade of ZB. Touch-ups are £1.99 each.
Hi Can anyone tell me the colour code for Rover Burnt grey and do Halfords sell a touch up stick/pot of it. Or can someone tell me where I can buy one please.
Terry if you call me during work on 01483 550695 or 01276 423353 I should be able to look it up for you
