Version 1 of the site is live.  Let me know what you think!!

www.colormymini.com


Great resource!

For version 2: Would be sweet if there were a photo or drawing of a Mini and the color selected "painted" the car. 
For version 3: Would be sweet if there were several Minis on screen to compare colors (could be last few colors searched, or a list/search box to set each one).


Great ideas i will add them to my future revisions!  Thank you. :-)

They always look so good with a fresh respray - I like the colors too.....

Do you mind sharing what the paint job cost? It looks like they did the whole inside and bottom as well as the outside. What kind of paint did they use? Modern 2 pack with clear coat or.....?

That may be the colour I go with.....Signal Red I guess that would be ( COF )
But 69 ?

What was the code for Tartan Red?  Wee the Royal Mail vans Tartan?

Post Office Vans were painted with a colour unique to the Post Office.  It was called "Pillar Box Red".  Not a standard BMC or Leyland colour.

Although one might think an early Mini Van in red would be Tartan red, that may not be the case.  BMC had what they referred to as "commercial colours" which were different from what they put on cars.  Also, Post Office vehicles were painted Pillar Box Red.

/Insert Mini Paint Trivia: There was also a color called Police White which was a brighter (than OEW or Snowberry White) used on Minis used by the fuzz.

I can offer a version of engine green paint formulas by Sherwin Williams. I think I paid $18 a quart. Would probably do 20 engines.
