    2010 SV6 Paint code (609R)

    Hoping someone can help me identify this paint code. Plate says 609R, however that is Atomic, which is a lighter/green colour. This is a dark green/blue metallic color and for the life of me, I can't find it! Help ☺

    [General] Alloytec Engine Assembly

    Found this great video showing the assembly process of the Alloytec engine. Might help someone. This one is twin turbo, but you get the idea. If only they put a twin turbo 3.6ltr in a Commodore. (Yeah, I know what I'm saying).
