    Default 403 colour codes

    ive got the colour code and name for the paint on one of my 403's (222431, angora white).. i checked numerous paint places and none had it on record. 1 place had an angora white for a 51-61(?) citroen. anyone know if this is the same?
    thanks for any input

    that would be pretty close

    but, a white 403 ????
    you don't really want to keep it white do you ?

    i know it's a personal thing but white really doesn't suit a 403 at all

    in fact most pale colours don't suit them they need something with a bit of "body" to it

    same as 203's

    i have seen white 203's and they do nothing at all for me but a good strong bodied colour does

    a mustard/bicuit colour suits the 403 much better than white and it's still a light colour

    remember a 403 is different why have it the same colour as 75% of the rest of the cars on the road

    Default paint code

    Is the colour plate in the engine bay ( if its still there) marked Dulon or Berger?
    Most Australian assembled ones were painted in Dulon> I'll check my old paint books to see what comes up. I painted one of mine Datsun Soft Blue in Dulux acran which was the closest colour to the Pug blue. Held up welll till I sold it to a girl in Canberra.

    Default no code: angora white

    Sorry drew a blank in my books. There's nothing listed in Dulux pre 80 back mto mid 60's for angoras. Most listed in Renault/Pugs/Cits is for Alpine white.

    You could try Dulux library as I know they had colour cards way back to 060 which was a Monze Red I used some years back.
    Bon chance

    thanks phil.

    searched everywhere and all i could find was the citroen colour. yes the code is still under the bonnet but no paint suppliers can find anything. Just dropped the bonnet down at the paint place and hes going to eye match it for me and give me the new code
