Hi, I'm after a bit of information regarding early paint colours/codes.
Can anybody confirm the colours on Peter Harrison's Mk1 3 litre in James Taylors book? (even Peter if he still owns the car and is a reads the forum!) from looking at the paint info in the book it would appear to be shadow green over pine green.
I love the clour combination and was thinking of a colour change for my coupe, shadow green all over, maybe pine green for the roof, non standard I know but I think it would look really nice
Ideally paint codes for these would be great if they still exist.
Will, the paint codes for these colours do still exist and you can look them up/print them, in 'Paint Codes in the 'bodywork and interiors' section. Any good paint specialist will be able to make them up for you. My local specialist does have the colour swatches and he has the mixing codes on the reverse side.
