Seat frame paint colour

Postby Martin Cridford » 23 Feb 2017 12:18

I know I've read it somewhere but I can't find it in V8BB by searching...can anyone advise a good match car spray paint that matches the RV8 seat frames? It's a beige colour not dissimilar to Ford Cortinas of the day!
I've dismantled my seats to fit better seat covers and they could do with a bit of paint near the reclining mechanism and hinges.

Thanks
Martin

A key word search via the search box on the V8 website homepage brings up a link to a note by Olav Jensen as RV8NOTE352:

Thanks Victor.

Just to close this thread for others that may be interested I have just found the reference to touch-up paint colour that I read earlier - it is in a set of printed notes which I found on the 'Burblers' website entitled 'MG RV8 Parts List'.

Colour match is stated to be Ford Tuscan Beige or Halford's Champagne Beige.

Edit 1: I have since found that Champagne beige is a Rover colour so I expect this to be a better match. I will advise further when I have tried some out.

Edit 2: I can confirm that 'Rover Champagne Beige' is a good match for the seat frames. Available from Halfords.
