Thread: Colour code help.

    Colour code help.

    Hi everybody.
    I normally frequent the 9000 forum on here but have just recently purchased a 900LPT Convert.

    I have searched high and low through (all the suggested places as previously described here) this car in the hunt for a colour code but have been unsuccessful.

    Can anyone out there tell me the colour code for this please.

    I am assuming that pictures are ok to be posted. Please let me know if this is frowned upon and I'll delete them immediately.

    Thanks for your help. I have posted a few pix as my digi camera doesnt give very good colour definition in low light levels. Im hoping one of them will be good enough for an ID.

    Pictures are OK.

    I think it is Le Mans blue, but I am willing to be corrected by someone more knowledgable on this subject.

    Thanks /john

    You don't happen to know the actual code for this do you?

    Cheers

    Le Mans Blue is BC 229
    Iridium Blue is BC 220
    Ultramarine is BC 215
    Embassy Blue is BC 198

    The paint code is normally on the strutt in the boot above the spare wheel, just lift the board over the spare & you should see it!

    Just in case it helps any one else.

    from the chassis number and reg plate Saab have just informed me that it is Nocturne Blue with Code 234.

    Thanks for the help.

    Cheers

    Nice car - almost identical to my old one

    I agree with /john, I think it's probably Le Mans blue - although the boot and bonnet photos look a bit light, but I'm putting that down to lighting conditions.

    Worth having a look through the Forecourt to see if you can find any other similar cars (all three of my blue Saabs are there ) - and, of course, put some pics of your own in

    /john, don't forget BC234 - Nocturne Blue.

    Cheers

    Thanks mate.

    Will have a trawl through the forecourt later.

    Cheers
