    Not sure if a main dealer (depending on Landy age) could tell you the factory colour from the chassis number, but haven't seen a public database that has this (think microcat, if it has the colour field completed at all just says 'white' or 'green')

    Hi

    Might want to pop across to the into thread, but welcome.

    This will give you the code

    Land Rover Freelander Touch Up Paint

    I use Autopaint St Helens, but any Car paint seller and even some Halfords willsort you out

    Less than 500ml needed just for the roof, but I'd buy a litre

    I did my exterior with 8 pre-mixed rattle cans

    Think guys have used small gloss rollers and done the whole outside with a couple of litres - it goes a long way once thinned with cellulose thinners

    Guess it depends on how you are going to apply, how many coats etc.

    Personally i'd buy 5 litres because I hate running out, but I think you'd have loads left over - some threads on here with people using 6 litres to do inside and out, but think that's a bit OTT

    If you put 'howe much paint' into the search you'll ssee a good few threads and even more opions!

    Hi

    I was wondering if anyone can help identify the actual colour green my Defender actually is?

    Any help is most appreciated.

    That looks like the same green as my buddy here has on his HCPU. We too are looking to find what colour this green is called. Any update on this question yet by chance?

    :)

    Just buy up some nato green, or bronze green if you want something a bit richer.

    I prefer Satin because it marks less than matt without being shiney

    Paint the entire vehicle and stamp that colour code onto the plate. That's what I'm doing anyway.

    I couldn't be arsed to be honest. I use my 110 for what she was built for. Don't see the point in fancy paint jobs. I just want to paint the rear door the same colour as the rest as its blue because the old one rotted to bits.

    If anybody has a defender that looks same colour as mine (see avatar pic) than could they please check paint code and let me know if possible. Most appreciated.

    I assume you've been to your local paint supplier and tried their colour chip cards against your motor?

    Yes. Pretty sure it's coniston green but there seems to be various shades. Goin to a place this weekend with one of those fancy colour code guns. Hopefully that sorts it.
