Colour code shows that car was originally champagne beige. 70's speak for gold!

Has also been previously light metallic blue.

Car will not be staying red (assuming Andy001 will oblige) and I don't really fancy gold as not a big fan of metallics.

Has to be something 70's though like lime green, orange or perhaps sky blue. Any input please...

What about white? This is my car just after I bought it in March last year. Might not suit your car if you keep the slatted rear window unless you painted the slats in black.

Always loved the 6 headlight look...is the Renault 16 engine correct for the car?
I see that you are moving " d113 ppe" from your red A610 too....
If you can't stand the original colour, I think the like Green looks very period, what colour is the interior?
