Paint codes

Postby Icedmunkie » Fri Jan 06, 2012 6:38 pm

How can I find out what the paint code is for my firenza?? I am trying to get a match for the original colour not the faded orange it is currently!

Check out this page: http://www.vauxhallviva.com/?page_id=296 - select the vehicle year and you will see the paint codes listed there, and how to match them with the paint code on the build plate.

Thanks!

So according to the information on my plate: 93537 DOM 216840 1RD 1X2

It should be the following:
PAINT CODE COLOUR BODY STRIPE NYLON/P.V.C. TRIM (CLOTH)
CODE COLOUR
1RD FLAMENCO RED BRILLIANT WHITE 1X2 ONYX
or
1RD FLAMENCO RED GOLD 1X2 ONYX

As According to the first half of the VIN 935371V its made in 71 so which year is it?

Its an faded orange but suppose this could have been red, and where would this body stripe be?? and its not had cloth but vynal on it,
Can anybody show me an Flamenco Red Car with the white stripe on it??

I take it the plate is a rectangular one? as mine looks possibly made up unless that how they were
