That's most interesting. Like you, Peter, I have delayed work on the intake system(bought another V8 late last year and concentrated on that over winter)

Do we conclude the paint code colour was incorrect or have HMG supplied the wrong paint? I have not opened any of the aerosols so will wait and see.

Richard,
I plan on getting in touch with HMG, but haven't done so yet. I'll let you know what happens.

Peter,
Was Rover Burnt Grey code 027 the correct colour for the inlet manifold?

Victor,
If you're just painting your air filter and claws one tin of hammer finish silver hammerite would be sufficient. You'll need to bare metal them then apply the hammerite without a primer to get a similar finish to the original.

Peter,
Just come across the receipt for the paint from HMG, so wondered if you had reached any conclusions about whether the wrong paint was specified or HMG had supplied incorrectly.
