COLOUR HELP

Post by Tomtomgo » Sun Mar 28, 2021 2:27 pm

Hi guys. My van had a complete respray a couple of owners before me and I have no idea what it is. What's the best way if any to figure this out? I don't have details for the owner who had it sprayed.

Any help really appreciated!

Take it to a paint supplier or body shop.They will have colour cards or they can put a scanner on it to get you a match.

Nice one thank you! Is that just any old place or does it have to be somewhere vw specific or something?

B&q do colour matching :P

You need a paint shop with a spectrum analyser or whatever it's called, you could post a picture up here it might be a vw colour someone recognises and a touch up pen on that code would say for sure.

That looks a nice colour for sure. Hopefully someone with a vw colour chart to hand will recognise it. Looks like a gun metal grey/silver. Not usually a fan of silvers but I really like that one.

Thank you! Yeh it's really nice. Just wish I knew what it was! On my v5 it just says bronze. Fingers crossed someone knows!

Look in the fuse box for a label. It should have a 4 digit code usually starts with 'L'

As scoobysrt has said you may need a paintshop to match it for you
