Question Blue colour paint issue

Greetings, my first post on this site... be gentle
Just got daughters first car 1.2 RN Clio "S" reg, 46k on the clock , two lady owners....
Have a paint code of OV460 but find people have different views as to what the colour is
Some say Pacific Blue, other sites suggest Bleu Roy 2c . It looks like Midnight blue when I check the paint charts at Halfrauds...
Any one help ... and by the way , are Dealer colours best option
Cheers Paul

Re: Blue colour paint issue

This is one of those rare occasions where the same paintcode has been used twice by the same manufacturer.

From 1973 - 1977, 460 was Bleu Fonce.

From 1997 - current date its now Bleu Roy (2C).

As your daughter's car is an S-reg Clio, it'll be the second option.

If you are planning any spraywork, you need to use a black primer to ensure the correct shade of basecoat.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
