Anyone know the paint code for the 'gun metal grey' on 50th alloys,
and a source for a can of spray ?

Hi there, you will probably find that most of the local trade automotive paint suppliers offer a matching service and will make you up a spray can for about a tenner. The nozzles tend to give a far better finish than the usual Halfords rubbish as well.
Cheers Craig

These are the paint refs for the 50th, the code is the ref you need if going to an automotive paint supplier, the name is The Land Rover name and the LRC ref is the Land Rover paint ref (only needed if buying touch up paint from LR.

Note Arlen is also Westminster Grey

FYI I have used www.paints4u.com in the past, the do aerosols and touch up kits.

Atlantis Blue Mic 2ct
Code: JYW
Ref: LRC.632 Yr 1998

Wheels:
Westminster Grey or Arken Grey Mic 2ct
Code:LUQ
Ref:LRC.445 Yr 1990- 1992

Thanks Simon, as per my purchase today
from Victoria, the code relates to a paint colour
with a 2 year span, some 6 years before
LR thought of the 385 50th run

How does that work ?
