Paint code UA1?

Post by rutter123 »

Need some paint for the estate, all i can find is a small sticker on the n/s inner wing with UA1 on it, is the the colour code? The car is white but i beleive there are a few white colours? There is no colour code stamp on the inner wing. Would VIN number help?

Thanx for that 110, but i still have no idea which one, the car has had a lot of the inner wing cut away for repair work i suspect the code has been cut away too, i vaguely recall EW? but still dosen't help, maybe Tim could shed some light on it?

Is ''Alpine White'' an official Citroen colour as I can't find an official cross-reference to it on line, every cross reference for the paint code EWT comes up as 'Blanc Meije'?
