Hi Guys, hopefully Slim or Daimmo mite be able to help me here or sumbody else.I don't know how to work out my cars colous & would like sum help plz if possible.I've looked thru the search thing but I must be stevie wunda or sumthing coz I can't find the Duco Colours.My April 84 Calais Paint Code is 2F 015-D.I've seen a few VL's in the same colour.Sumbody on here b4 mentioned the Calais have Asteroid Silver under so I know that much.Her Jun 84 EFI Berlina's Paint Code is 2F 014-B.Now I'm assuming they're both sum sort of Copper as mine is a Gold but hers is more like a coca cola Metallic brown over Silver.I know it isn't Asteriod Silver undeneath aswell as the shade is too dark.I'm considering that grp 3 Scoop & hers need a bonnet paint.I'm an old wizz at painting cars so that's no drama just the colour names plz..

How about yellow? It's cheap enough and I think a good yellow can make a VK look cool. I almost scored a yellow VK once.

Depends what colour you want, im a spray painter and lately ive seen ford's acid green on vl's and pastel pinks on vs's, its really what you're into, if you want give me an idea of what colour, ill get somechips and post em you choose and imsure we'd be able to sort something out,

There is a VK here in my home town, that is painted in that VN SS goldish-red (is it called persian sand?) shade.. it has the VN SS stripe kit on it... and I must say I have only seen it on the road, but it looks pretty sharp... If I was doing my VK again, I would consider that colour scheme...

I rang the paint crowd here in Adelaide that specialises in the Duco colours.The Gold on my Calais is called 'Corniche'.To me it's just bloody gold.I've not seen so many VK Calais in this shade, not to say it's rare but I've seen more VL Calais in the same gold shade than K's.
You were rite Daimmo about the Berlina Metallic Brown it's just called 'Copper'..Now the next step is to dust off the old pot gun & passively inhale Carcinagenic chemicals...eeeewwww
