110 paint colour

Recommended Posts

Any idea what the paint name or code is on my 86 110. It's never been painted and seams a bit of a strange county to me.

Sand looks close so does beige camo on colour charts.

Can i hijack this thread and ask about the colour of my beastie as well? It's a 2000 Td5. Bodywork prep is starting soon and i'm tempted by the hand painted option.

Looks like Zambizi silver. Don't be tempted to hand paint it. At least not in silver.

Excellent, thanks! Project rust starts tomorrow so i'm a bit away from painting yet. Good to know silver doesn't like hand painting though.

Metalic or mica paint contains flakes which reflect the light, if you brush paint it you get very obvious brush marks - its also a mat finish, the gloss comes from clear laquer coats on top,  which again doesn't suit brush painting.  You can hand paint (with roller or brush) using enamel paint (1k polyeurethane) in solid colours, if you want to keep it silver it's best to take it to a bodyshop.

Thanks all, you've saved me quite a headache there i think!

I phoned the nice chaps at my local LR dealership, gave them the last 8 digits of my VIN and they've told me mine is Blenheim Silver.

@Lizzard pete - give your local stealer a call and hopefully they'll have the info.
