Paint colour test- getting exciting now!

Here’s the Mini’s colour scheme, sprayed onto an old wing Sin had lying around (some kind of tractor, I think). Starting to get exciting now!

As we found at home, the green (BS4800 14C40 Conifer/Moss Green) changes colour quite a lot depending on lighting- inside, it looks more saturated (almost to a British Racing Green), while outside it’s more subdued, closer to BMC Almond Green.

Sin convinced us to tone down the white- the powder coated wheels and grille looked great on their own, but next to the green they’re a bit… white. Refrigerator white.  So we’ve gone for Old English White and it’s perfect.
