Colours

Postby Loadie » Tue Mar 05, 2019 7:19 am

Not sure if this is the correct spot for this one but im looking to find a colour scheme for the interior of my 1956 s2 convertible.
The body is BRG but the interior is a mix of red door cards and wheel arch covers and green carpets. One seat is red leather with white piping the other is pkain red.
As im looking to replace the interior id like to pick a colour scheme that was an option. Anyone got a list or know where they are on the web??
Cheers

Wow! Is that a handy 'all you need to know' model guide, or what?

Thanks for posting

"Empire Green" was replaced in 1956 by "Dark Green" which looks much more like your car. Dark Green cars generally had a light grey interior.

OK so I done some more research and its dark grey according to the chassis number !! Whoever repainted it did a thorough job as there's no evidence its ever been anything other than green anywhere I can see, its even dark green inside the sills!!
I'l just pretend and work on an interior to marry with dk green :-)

Good plan! Make it look as you would like it. Unless you are into concours stuff it's a taste thing. :wink:
