Hello Dave

Welcome to the Wolseley Register and to this forum, and thanks for joining us! I am sending you a welcome pack out today which will introduce you to the Register.

I have been speaking to another member about your paint query, and he will hopefully look up your paint code and reply on this forum later today. The only comment that I would suggest is to be careful when matching your paint. If your car's paintwork is old, it is likely to have faded and any new paint added may be a different shade, even if it is the correct code. It might be better to take you car to get an exact match made up by a specialist.

Regards
Bob

Hi Dave,
There were two BMC maroons in the '60s, Maroon code RD8 and Maroon B code RD23. Yours is more likely to be RD8 but as they changed arround '61/'62 It's not certain.
Marlow and Smale of Barnstaple Tel 01271 268083 are very good paint suppliers so if you can cut back and polish a panel and take the car over to them they will be able to match the colour to their paint chips and mix some up for you.
Cheers,
Graham.
