Hi Nick.

The paint code you require is referance

GL 28775. Mexico Brown.

Rover used this from 1970 through to 1975. The paint was supplied by a company called Ault Wiborg.

Your paint shop should be able to trace this.

Hope this helps.

Paul. :D

Just to add.
The paint codes were in one of the back issues of P6 News, but can't remember how long ago.
Brenda will sent the codes to Deborah again to publish in this months P6 News if she has room.

Paul ;)

(4) listed as used on 3½ litre and 2000. The colour chip is very dark brown not dissimilar to Mexico Brown. This is nothing like the colour of the Huntsman Brown vinyl used on the roof panels, which wouldn’t have applied to the 2000 anyway.
