    What colour?

    Can anyone tell me what colour this is?


    And, anyone want to give some suggestions on what colour the pads & drums should be?

    Is this your car ? or at least u have access to it?

    If so just check the paint code on the little black sticker on the drivers door shut.
    Open the door and it'll be on the inside edge of the B-pillar. Very bottom line on the left in the format of 73L for instance (not sayin thats ur colour - just an ideal of what it'll look like.
    Ignore the code along the lines of "XXJG" - this is ur interior trim code.

    Let me know the paint code and I'll tell ya the colour.

    As for what colour to paint the calipers/drums.

    Drums should ALWAYS been painted black - to prevent ppl noticing u actually have drums. Please do NOT colour code rear drums (or indeed any other colour than black) this is reserved for chavs and their 1.1 saxos and the likes!

    Calipers - now this is a different story. I'd usually suggest red, but in this case I say it might clash therefore silver or gold could be a good alternative. you could always colour code the calipers to ur body colour which I think would also work.

    What do u reckon?

    I'm thinking the gold colour might be good.

    It'll be a while before the car gets sprayed or anything and there's already a small gold line down the body of the car.

    Colour is maybe Rubens Red (two-coat pearlescent) or Pomegranite Red...



    As for brakes - keep it black or silver at a push...

    yeah, pomegranite is looking promising. I'm just thinking along the lines of getting the handles and bump strips done at the mo.. but i'll look at the chasis plate when i get back!
