    Default Sherwood green

    I am trying to find a formula for Sherwood Green which I believe was a Citroen colour used from 1960 until 1963 in England.The colour was also used for the side flash on Mk1 Lotus Cortinas.

    Lotus forums give these references; ICI 3386 and Dupont Dulux 98411-D.

    My local paint supplier does not recognise either formula.

    Is anyone able to help?

    Try Protec.

    They are able mix/ match all the Peugeot and Renault colours from around 1958.

    They may well be able to do Citroen colours as well.

    Protec - Paint, Value, Support

    Best to contact Proctec directly rather than a distributor.

    Possibly the same Sherwood Green used on Jaguar MkII of the same period.

    Rootes Group [ Humber, Hillman, etc.] used it too.

    Sherwood Green is available in enamel in a pressure pack can and is used in that form by one well known Citroen restorer.
    The following Auto/Truck/Fleet Paint Cross Reference at PaintRef.com at http://paintref.com/cgi-bin/colorcodedisplay.cgi?color=Sherwood%20Green will throw up about 90 cars who have used Sherwood Green and info. on them.

    The only problem I can see with Sherwood green is that the vehicles driver has to be dressed as Robin Hood.
    Some may struggle with the signature tights, I blame Mel Brooks for my condition!

    p.s. It's quite a retro, but, fetching colour.

    Thanks all for the leads and Chris for the pictures, that's definitely the colour I'm considering for the 203. I've become a little tired of blue and feel like a change.

    Will let you know how I get on.

    Have had a frustrating time trying to track down Sherwood Green. I've been in touch with Protec and PPG and learnt that PPG has acquired Protec but each concern operates independently. Neither has a formula for the colour.
    Chris's lead, however, is promising. The Standox website has colour chips for numerous Sherwood Greens including what I think is the colour I want.
    Apparently it is an industrial coating but their Southport distributor has obtained a 2K formula from Sydney. Next step is to get a 250ml sample mixed.
