Colour

Post by sjohn821@aol.com »

Hey,
I'm looking for paint codes.
My van will be red below and white on top,
Pearl white I have the code, but can anyone show me a red van and say what the code is? I'm looking for Red, post office red, Ferrari red, not Brown red, rusty dull red.
Thanks in advance.
John

Thanks Manzo, I did have a look before, but I would like to see the van in its full glory.
!964,
Looks like

L 456 (11) ruby red

Would it be wrong to deviate from the original?

Older colours coukd still be ordered then. Sealing Wax Red was quite possible too.

Trouble with some colours, particularly reds and whites they can look so different simply with lighting changes.

I have a SWR panel with white roof, the red can go from orangey in bright sunlight to quite dark

Heres a pic if it helps.

Do not get me going!
I am a stock man!
You accept what you are dealt with and make the best of it!
So that out of the way..
Microbus?
Kombi?
Panel Van?

Ruby Red is an unusual code...was that on the m code?
Would look nice all that shade with a white roof..
That is a one year only code..
See you have got me started!
I always wanted an all Turkis Devonette bus...Found one, a microbus with pearl white upper but found it the OG code was BG & SWR...
so that is what it will be ..
Excited to see it finally in all its OG glory..
Rant over..
So answers?

Original code for the panel van EZ was 1964, Pearl white all over, I'm doing pearl on top, and nose, red below,
OG went out the hehr window.
Just looking for some pics, Ducatis, what colour code is your one, it looks a little bit red / brown but as you said it could be the light change.

A problem with seeking photos is that you can search out thr colour on Fire trucks on thesamba.com.. but pictures you will find are pictures of OG paint on buses..
There are re painted buses on SSVC forum in RAL 3000.

Thanks Gents, I'm still no convinced, Fire engine red will be the right colour, Ral 3000
If you have any other ideas towards a red colour please send photos and codes.
