Orange front grill on competition car

Postby Adrian » Mon Feb 04, 2013 5:36 pm

Hi All,
I was going to paint my grill orange for this season, is anyone else doing this?

I looked at the 50th anniversary sticker orange and with the club magazine article orange and both are completely different any idea which is about right?

I was thinking http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stor ... yId_165495

Cheers

That looks a much better shade of orange than my darker one which was Peugeot Seville, I feel a purchase coming on :lol:

The magazine orange is correct. The sticker orange is unfortunately not well printed (despite them being sent correct artwork and colour references).

The sticker was a nice surprise with the mag, looks good.
