South African paint code ZZ

Recommended Posts

Hello All

I have not long bought an Mk2 Escort 1600 sport that was imported into the UK from South Africa

The paint code on the plate is ZZ but I can not find any mention of this code  (the other plate mentions ind red )

Does anyone know what paint colour I should be getting for a few bits that need touching up ?

Looks pretty close to Venetian red on my 1976 Mexico MK2.

 

If the car is being painted all over, then that's what I would go with, makes future paint rectification that much simpler.

 

Nice car.

I now have something to work from (found a picture of a ford in Hermitage red that looks close and will check out venetian red also )

Big lump off filler just fell out of drivers side wheel arch (due to bent not rust !! ) with paint on so I now have something to take to paint suppiler !!

Is that the original paint on there though or a cheap knockoff? :mrgreen:  (Sorry I couldn't resist)

I have now lowered it 1" at the back and it looks Better I think

Perhaps it to cope with the extra weight from the large fuel tank when full ( never filled it to max yet fuel is to dam expensive !!)
