No,it's not! :shock: It's called 'Sebring Silver Starmist!! AND---- there were 22 shades of that colour too ---Not kidding !
Don't know why,but the number 22L just popped into my head. Not sure if that's the code for this colour. :)

I am working on that one. Looking to do Steve P's for him some time.

Not sure on the price but I would require all the prep work to be done. All I will need to do then is just a few little bits to ready it for the paint. I will work out a price and let you know.

I don't know,but there really were 22 shades !!

In '78,I had an H.S Chevette and my dad had a VX2300GLS,both supposedly the same colour. My H.S was a bright silver and my dad's car was a yellowy silver. They looked like completely different colours !! :? :shock:

I think you'll find it's NOT !!

Starfire Silver was a different shade and it was more like a 'metalflake' type paint. :) . Take it from someone who had a H.S Chevette --- I know very well,what the colour was called !

Just for reference, a good trade motor factors like Brown Brothers may still have access to the 'old' paint formula's. :wink:

Hi Sheldon
I will get it first thing in the morning and ring you, your wheels should be ready soon as I'm just finishing removing the paint on the 7x13's.
Do you need the rear turret covers as I am removing mine and the black pvc arch covers too!
