    Re: Paint Codes

    i always thought Gun-Metal Grey was a colour?
    My car has been crash-damaged and cant find the paint code in the ususal places.
    Which of these would have been closest to the 'gun-metal' colour that is often used to describe Corrados:

    Diamond Silver Metallic -----------------L97A ----------------------90
    Light Grey Metallic ----------------------LP7Z -----------------------91
    Pearl Grey Metallic ----------------------LA7U ---------------------91 - 93

    Re: Paint Codes

    Does any-one know if Khaki Pearl was available as a UK colour?

    And any photos as well? Sounds like a more "Marmite" colour than Nugget!
