MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Paint colour matching woes
|I've finished making my bonnet bulge to cover the K-series.|
Shaped by eye using heavy aluminium mesh riveted to the hole for the cam cover, then fibreglass and filler.
My car was resprayed before I got it - I believe it's an original MG colour for later year midgets, because I've seen a small number of similar coloured cars.
I tried "Bracken", but as you can see from the foto, it's a slightly greener colour.
My next guesses would be Blaze (BLVC16) or Bronze Yellow (BLVC15).
Does anybody recognise the car colour?
or have a link to a site with good examples of the Leyland colours?
|I thought your car looked like Bronze yellow and would account for the registration but try this website|

|allowing for colour variances on photos and monitors, as it's a colour that I like on a Midget I'd also say it was probably Bronze Yellow|
I went to look at buying one in that colour in Wales
I like your wheels too :)

|Thankyou - Bronze Yellow will be my next try.|
|The brochure that Nigel posted is bronze yellow.|
Here's a photo of a bronze yellow Midget that I had...
|that's right make me even more jealous|
I hope you get no charge 'Road Tax' if yours is was registered on 1/1/73 as itís from manufacture date not registered date
I had a car manufactured on 8 Jan 1973 so it missed the 7 days discretion by one day!
|I would almost definitely say that it is Bronze yellow. |
It is the colour I dream of owning a 73 RWA in... its the car BL used in nearly all they're adverts - and there are some good ones!
