I resprayed my Mk4 1979 in Monza Red a few years back. I liked how bright it was.
I need to do a bit of toughing up as I have a few paint chips. I don't have the original Paint can but I did find a note I kept, with the code: BLVC 590 Monza Red. Doing some searches for this I found there are 2 paint codes for Monza Red. One is the 590 and the other one is 1253. A google search for the 590 comes up with not a lot, and the search for 1253 comes up with a lot of results for a rover paint from the 90's, which makes sense.
My question is will the Monza Red 1253 be the same as the 590?
in this forum the codes are together, http://restorationmi....php?topic=61.0
