Hi, i've got a 1990 Racing Flame with a paint code of RWU, is this a combination code of COF(Flame Red) and white roof?

Many thanks

I just brought a new bonnet for my mini and it need spraying the right colour, and was wondering if anyone knows that paint code of my mini, the guy who i got it off said it was a customer colour and when he had the bumpers done he forgot to ask what the paint code was. Any Help would be great.

Thanks JD :thumbsup:

You'll find a pic of a cinnabar red mini on my project link;

Its very similar to Vermillion red.

Anyone know what the colour on Neons is? I believe it's called blue grey metallic, but can't find it on this thread or the link to the other site. The code on the chassis no. plate is JGV, which would seem to indicate a blue colour code. Also out of interest, what's the white roof colour ( not that I need it yet! :techsupport: )

I noticed there's a trim code too: LOY. Is there a guide to these somewhere?

(p.s. just found another thread on this and it would appear I misread and the colour is JQV, which is Nordic Blue for neons. Is it still available in touch up cans, or do I need to get it mixed?)

Halfords will be able to mix it for you, if it's not available off the shelf. Your roof will most likely be diamond white.

Hi just saw this, though I don't think I got an e-mail notification, tho I ticked that box.

Thanks for the offer Lewis, but last weekend I did confirm the colour is Nordic Blue, and managed to get the last can of Holts duplicolour ( code LBM150) 2-pack, and started on the smaller rust patches, and the colour matches in fine. :thumbsup:

Could anyone help me with paint codes?

I'm unsure what colour to go for yet. But I'm thinking a bright Lime Green or bright Orange...

Best places to get the paints and all that from ? I plan on spraying it myself (with a friend who can actually spray, thankfully)
