Pretty close to call from what I can see on the PC but I'm sure it looks different again in the flesh and under different lights.

Below you can see that the left test card with the custom colour is really close so I will be using this when I decide to refurb, this will be a base over Iím waiting to get the actual code as all they gave me was a tin with a blank label

Right test card is the ď rays racing bronzeĒ












Itís really close as we can see, but it will always look different when done, especially as the lip is finished differently, looks satin and also ďDimond cutĒ the rest of the alloy is rough and and has some weird texture to it, to retain this I wonít be powder coating as thatís too thick.


Fitted the wheels over the weekend with a new set of cup2s and it completely transformed the look and drive



Nice what is the width and offset of the ce28?

Out of curiosity, how do you find the road noise is without any carpet in? Iíve wanted to remove mine for a while but the car already seems noisy enough with the fuel pump whining!

Do you think you can post the paint supplier contact info and the paint code once you have it please as I have some TE37's needing a refurb and I'm sure there are many others who would also appreciate the work you've done in finding the best colour match?

Thanks a lot!

My carpet is in mate. But yes itís noisier, I had it out years ago along with the rear seats, quickly fitted it all back in. Rs is already noisy as it has no sound deadening so you remove the carpet and it just gets louder, same thing with the rear bench, especially if you have a pump in the boot. I have all my interior in and every time I get home from a day out in it my ears are ringing lol.
