    Hi guys,
    Any idea were I could get some touch up paint for my lunar grey rover. I was told to try MGBD parts but got no response from them at all and don’t have a paint code for it ,so the local auto shop that can do spray cans can’t help me either , any help would be great..

    I get all my paint from them, great shop, they do all sorts of custom stuff too. I got some Mopar Sassy Grass Green (60s colour) mixed in Cellulose most recently. Contrary to the name they’re in Hove actually ;)

    Interesting, Rudigers list says Almond was available until October 1974, mine was built November 1975, beginning to wonder if it should be turmeric?


    Edit:Just had a look at my heritage certificate and it says huntsman brown and almond.

    Have you driven your car to a paint shop and seen if they can match the color. I got some mixed, and they had a series of color cards to compare with the car to match, and then they mixed once they had a code. If the paint is original then it may have faded over the years. Also it may have been repainted at some time in a non Rover color.

    Speaking of colours, I came across this picture of paint colours and trim colours. Its a good comparison of the different interior trim options.
    Thought I'd share.
