Three other colours for you.

HYF – Brooklands Green (there are two, same code different shades)

ERM - Orange

MNH - Sparkle Silver
hmmm HYF Brooklnds Green 1997-2000 is on the list .... I think you misunderstand the concept of shades,most paint systems have more than one shade of each colour,sometimes 20 or 30,if you include field formulations where someone has matched a colour specificly.

ERM is the BRM Orange (grille etc),but i'll add it!

MNH or MVH isn't either,on the Sikkens/Lesonal system! AFAIK its wheel
colour,but i'll let you have that one as dupont list it and version II MVH along with ERM.

If it has a code it needs to be here,the database I use doesnt really go in for wheel and trim colours it seems.

Thanks for caring! :)

HYF – Brooklands Green - 1997-2000
Is supposedly the BRM body colour but it isn't.

The BRM body colour is an old British Leyland Brookland Green Colour which is the same code but is darker.


Sorry only doing this so that you've got the right codes if or when i come and see you to get some spraying done :D

prove it because every major paint manufacturer has got that one wrong then :)

There was an earlier version used on landrovers 92-95 but thats supposed to be the same colour as the Rover later version.
It is a translucent colour I could make it darker by using black underneath,which is a popular trick with the colour,has it had work?

Just going by experience.

Halfords do a pre mixed and a over the counter brooklands green, they are totally different shades.

&

When i got some spraying done the only one they had was similar to the Halfords pre mixed colour so they had to colour match the colour.

Halfords are knobs! They probably couldnt knock the same colour up twice if they tried!
mixed colours is just a case of following a formula of tinters by weight,sometimes misjudging the amount of certain tints in certain colours by even a few tenths of a gram will screw it up.

I will check it out tomorrow and ring a friend who will be able to tell me,I have to admit I looked at pics of BRM's and they do seem a bit dark,I wonder if they were painted elsewhere to the usual?

The British Leyland Brooklands Green was a solid colour (BLVC 169, recoded HMM in 1980). It is a much brighter kind of green than the Rover Group metallic Brooklands.

HMM shows on your list as Shannow Green? Is this a typo, as there is also a Shannow Green listed as HAE?

There is a list of the BL colours used on MG's here: http://www.mgcars.org.uk/MGB/mgbpaint.html

Brooklands green is BLVC 169 HMM comes up as Shannow on sikkens and Brooklands on dupont it still shows as BLVC 169,just a database name difference.
HAE shows as BLVC 169 also.

I kind of guessed a solid colour green wouldnt look like a metallic. :)

However the HYF is BLVC 600 but still a solid green,but with bluer and darker variants as standard.

I edited the list :)

some of these codes will be Triumph related etc.

which code is the metallic Brooklands you mean?

I think I was getting confused; it was late :slap:

The darker Brooklands I meant was the HYF (which as you say, definately is the BRM colour).

The BL 1970's Brooklands was not as dark a colour as the BRM.
This colour :



Shannow/Brooklands - another case of renaming for marketing purposes perhaps?

It is a very confusing business,even databases can be wrong,Shannow green? I cant google a single Rover group example! but the BLVC 169 gives it away,so well spotted anyhow,I will get it changed on Sikkens (again! they should pay us for the corrections)

As for welshones problem,I put it down to the paint used and method,it is possible to get a good match with effort and research.
But the BRM Brooklands isnt the same as the earlier version.

I had the TC Marina coupe lol nice pic.

Saw an orange Austin Princess out on the M27 yesterday,thought they were all dead by now.

It certainly is easy to get in a muddle. Not helped by MGR using different names for the same colour in the latter years, according to whether the car was a Rover or an MG (Tempest/XPower Grey, and the Xirallic/Firefrost mentioned on another thread of yours).

I have also noticed that HQM which is on the list as Aquamarine (was this the Rover name?), is what was applied to the facelift MG's as Goodwood Green. edit: I have just discovered this colour was used under the Aquamarine name on the 80th Anniversary TF

Could some of the names on the list (such as the Shannow Green) be the names allotted by the original paint supplier/manufacturer, and Rover used a different name for marketing purposes ?

See what a nightmare it is! I know it as Goodwood Green,but as you discovered,a marketing ploy later and voila a "New" colour is born Aquamarine :p
Its why I dont get the database changed for this type of thing,I saw an ebay seller with both names listed too.

Hi - came across this thread on a search for Goodwood Green as I'm gonna need some soon to colour code a Hard Top for an '04 80th Anniversary TF that I should be getting soon.

Am I reading it correct that the code is HYF even if it says 1997-2000 above ? Where can I order some of this paint from please or should any body shop be able to get it or make it up ok ?

Many Thanks :)

Many Thanks. You were too quick for my ninja edit ! Yes it's Goodwood Green not Brookland Green, have some sort of mental block around that at the moment.. ;)

Right so HQM it is, I've seen it described elsewhere as a pearlescent paint ? So if I wanted to get some of the proper MG paint where would I go ? Sorry for the stoopid newb questions :)

by the way you have a double entry for HQM in your first post of the thread ;)

HQM is 2 names,long story,covered previously by man in the car :p

It is confusing and expensive if mistaken and you paint the wrong colour :p

The secret is to use a quality paint.,yes it is pearl.

These people can help I should think.http://www.totalconceptpaints.co.uk/

Or you can get small aerosols from Xpart or ebay etc

or you can use one of the many online serosol paint providers.

The first option can match your colour to your car and make a fairly decent aerosol.

All depends on your flavour

or theres touch up stick that will always look too dark :)

Pete

you're welcome.

surely your paintshop people know how to mix/order paint anyhow!

dont forget to change your description under (where your avatar would be if you were a supporter) from brooklands,but will you use goodwood green or aqua marine as its been described used on the 80th anniversary? lol
