I'm looking to get the paint code numbers for the Cooper and Cooper S. I want to do some color matching for a project I'm working on and I need to make sure I have that I get it right.

Thanks -

I'm interested in them all - but if I had to choose I'll say the EB, CR and LY or DS

I'm doing some tone-on-tone applications and I need to be perfect if not darn close with the color.

>>

probably alot since when MINI2 went on a tour at the Oxford MINI plant, the minis are painted and then basically "electrocuted", er, well here, just read the article...

----------------------------------------
PAINTING THE MINI:

The paintshop was built in 1997 to the highest environmental and process standards. When it was under construction, it was the second biggest building programme in the UK - after the Millennium Dome. It is the most modern and flexible facility of its kind in the UK.
