Superstructure paint.

Around the windows of your BX, the paint gets tatty. I've been trying to find the right stuff for some time.

Dupli-Colour Tempest Grey. A Rover colour. It is a semi gloss, like that on the Citroen and it looks dead right!

Nice one Tom, that`s one of the jobs on my list for my newly acquired estate. I was going to try a mat black but I`ll buy the one you suggested now, thanks.

i think the colour your after is either FXX/GXA (they share the same code), and is called Noir Satine Mat Dupli color 0-50. You can get the same colour in a more 'gloss' appearance under code BXX

I have a big long colour list infront of me, but for the life of me i dont knwo where i downloaded it!
