    We are finally ready for paint on our Bay but need to get our colour sorted. I thought the colour we wanted was Birch green but after getting the spray painter to paint it on a sample its not quite the one. The picture below is what we were after (lighter and more minty), does anyone know the colour/code to suit? Getting very excited now, hopefully I'll start putting the old girl back together over Christmas. D930EED1-0428-4A89-A6EC-0E1FBC3B2298_zpsdiyglqwz.jpg

    Your Birch green and beryl green came out similar period of time .Colour chart of Porcelain Green it is a light mint green colour. It is difficult to use old formulas
    due to the fact that the tints aren't the same any more. Bus in question is a 64 period bus so Birch green would be the colour unless it is a custom birch green made up.

    Thanks all, I'll get the SP to make up a few samples and see what comes up the goods. Will keep you posted

    What year model is it?

    Is it Australian?

    No use looking at samba if it is pre '77.

    Mine is a 77 (not going for an original colour) just seeing if anyone knows the code. I might have to get him to just do a colour match though
