Can you tell me what is the meaning of each letter in the code?
T stands for primer colour?
E for basecoat?
I have seen on e-bay the same paint name "Red garange" but the paint code is only B79 ... I am not sure if it is enough. I didn't had any reply from the seller.
The thing is that the bonnet is green and the wing is silver. I took them from breakings.
