    We are well underway renovating a BJ45 (see the picture) and about to respray. People have been very helpful with finding parts etc. - thank you all.

    I'd like to spray it Toyota Beige 416 (it was white).

    Can anyone now let me know where the paint colour can be sourced or how we can get a swatch to colour match?


    Any help or experience in this area would be most welcome.


    Many thanks
    Adrian

    Most good paint suppliers will have a scanner or a set og colour maps they can use to get the RAL code for the paint you need. if in the south west i can help you with contacts.

    The guy doing the spraying has given me 2 swatches of what he calls beige 416 and beige 464.

    Unfortunately I've nothing to check it against to see how close the colour matches the original.

    Any thoughts....?

    Morning Tony,

    Are you well?

    Yup, looks good, have to decide on colour this afternoon as the paint needs to be ordered to start the respray on Monday.

    Thanks for the tip.

    Morning Tony

    Things are taking longer than expected - they always do.

    We reckon on spraying next week but the guy doing it is about to unexpectedly go away for a fortnight so might be a further delay.

    Better to wait and get the right result rather than rush it.

    Was planning to go to Stratford next weekend for the Overland show - sadly without the BJ45

    Regards

    Adrian
