i would like to know where i can get the aerosols from as Roger mentioned to spray different parts (are they Cellulose based ?)
my question is tho", dont you need some reference number or code of some sort like when mixing Dulux, i can imagine going to try and order it and they telling the name of the paint is irrelevant they need a code, or to colour match it to the car ( not yet on the road)

Try "paints4u.com" I have used them several times on different cars with great success. Just get a touch up sample first to check the colour match. They do recognise D371 as Aztec.

I always use Leonard Brooks in Harlow, Tel: 01279 417501. They've been very helpful over the years, with three different colours. Nevada yellow (5a), Arctic White (2x 6a) and, most recently Tarn Green (SS1). They recognise the various paint codes, I gave them the Standox code for the Tarn Green and they had the 400ml aerosols in stock at £11.50 each ex VAT. These were invoiced under the Reliant code 6000M.

I get mine from Autopaints of Brighton who according to their website do sell via online mail order, though I haven't needed to do that as they are not too far from me. I'm surprised you can't find anyone local in the Bristol area, maybe Andy (AJLElectronics) who's in Gloucester, might have some ideas for someone local?

Thanks all, i will look each of them up in turn, if its just colour samples then it will look as the faded paint looks rather than the original paint colour as a code would give you..thanks Gents

so Roger what code did you give "Autopaints of Brighton" for your Aztec Yellow ?, or if you had it colour sample scanned did they give you a code?,,, like i said my local well known paint shop didnt recognize any of the codes i tried.
(sorry if ive repeated myself 50 times, beginning to get wise to the forums workings now)

The only way to confirm colour of an early car is to find a piece that would have been painted originally, but possibly not when resprayed. Behind door cars, under door hinge covers, under sill covers, etc.

Original registration docs will give the first clue (of base colour, not shade) - have you submitted a v888 to DVLA?

i have a copy of original log book that says 'gold' so the golden sand would appear correct, under the windscreen seal / apperture, i have remains of a pale gold mettalic, what i would call a titanium gold.
can not find any pics of an SE5 in this colour though to see if i will like it or not !!
