Ive been servicing my engines (new hoses and coolers etc) and wanted to touch up the chipped and damaged areas of paint. Ive taken various parts to the local auto supply paint shop as samples but they couldn't come up with an exact match, even using their sample camera. In the end we resorted to trying to colour match using sample cards. It was quite difficult to get an exact match especially with such small samples, in the end we came up with a pretty close choice which they could make in a rattle can in 10 minutes. The colour is Med Lime Effect from Nason Finishes, colour code 44421. It isn't an absolutely perfect match but is nearly so and much better than the dirty, chipped and rusty engine block before.
