    looks a bit light for emerald green, external error's car always looked darker than those pictures and that was emerald green metallic, unless there was dark emerald green metallic.

    Thanks Gentlemen, I could only find 'Platinum Green' and 'Mistral Green' nothing like mine.

    Dave I have looked online and I think you got it!!

    I havent actually collected it yet so cannot see the VIN plate until I catch the train up North to get it.

    Ah lol, you haven't got it yet

    The googling the other colours doesn't bring up many pictures of UK cars but googling scarab green bring up a few UK based pics so seems to be a good bet. But the ID plate will tell us

    Thanks Dave!

    Firts job is the paintwork, little stone chips everywhere as its been a 'school wagon' for a lot of its life. But now I can order some paint mixed up. Someones had a go at the rear nearside door that needs the whole door painting! looks like the common mistake of someone trying to clean the paintwork using 'brake cleaner' or worse (which eats the paint) The other panels are as I said 'multiple stone and kiddy chips' getting their bikes in the car lol.

    " dad I just put a scrape on the car sorrrrry"

    DAD....... (THINKING........I'll return the Clay bar I bought to Amazon.....)
