    Default Dauphine Colour Schemes

    I'm going to rip into the brakes this week-end so the wheels will be off for a while.

    The colour is Vert Sevigne, I think.

    The wheels are a sort of silver. I may as well get them blasted where necessary & paint them.

    Can someone put up a link to a colour scheme spec so I get as close to original as possible?

    Your car is an Australian assembled Dauphine G, so doesn't use the French colours. It is best to take a panel into your fave paint supplier for them to match the shade, especially as the colour you have was prone to fading (compare an outer panel to an inner panel under the dashboard).

    Thnx Simon. I wasn't aware of that distinction.

    We have a fine supplier in Geelong that does that sort of thing all the time.

    Oh! I just recognised your avatar: from that black humour cult movie "The Cars That Ate Paris" ne c'est pas? Tres appropriee'!
