im a little bit annoyed about colour as I thought it was burnt grey roof but the colour seems very brown imo
was it it just burnt grey avaible on these or is there another grey?
I've seen a couple of 'burnt grey' roofs on P5B's, and they certainly looked more brown than grey to me. They may have been repainted, but the owners in each case said that the colour was burnt grey. Perhaps there was a colour blind person in the Rover paint shop..........
My Rover is burnt grey. I had a job getting paint to match,in the finish I took the whole car along to a paint suppliers near me and they provided me with a tin mixed and matched by hand (and what looked like a microscope. They said that paint used to be mixed by volume but is now done by weight so maybe that explains the difficulty buying 'off the shelf' as it were. The roof on mine is silver birch,I'm going to paint it as it has a dent (not guilty) and the paint has almost gone through to the primer in a couple of places (not guilty again).
Sills have been taken back to bare metal, front wing was fitted to check alignment on a post where it had been repaired, and required a bit of fettling, the same was done to the drivers side passenger rear wing has been lined up with doors and now in primer this leaves front wing repairs to be sorted and front valance to get in primer so probably couple of weeks away before paint as got a couple of other jobs to sort inbetween

Don't forget the bottom rear filler strip Carey also take the rear screen seal out and check each side bottom corner for corrosion! You may be lucky and the trim clips will line up usually better to weld up the holes if the wings are not from the same car.
