    Icon5 405 paint code

    Hi all,
    I am doing some repairs to my 1992 series 1 405 and need to match paint.

    There is a large sticker on the left hand strut tower with MOMH on it which, from an ICI Autocolor Car Register reference, indicates that the color is a “Ming Blue”. The reference however also lists a number of variants of this color, namely
    No1,
    C
    D1
    D2
    L
    Is there any markings on the car that lets me determine which of these variants my color is?

    Thanks,
    Greals

    This may not be a great help to you, but I suggest you find a good paint mixer or spray shop. Even if garaged every night, your car has probably spent 14 years in all kinds of weather which has faded or oxidised the original colour. If you mix up a batch of paint according to the original code, it will not match exactly the colour of your car today.
