Paint colour

Post  Malfisher on Thu May 27, 2010 4:03 pm

Hello all, my Falcon is black and white, apparently the white could be dover white? Does anyone know what modern paint colour would be equivalent to this FB colour?

Thanks for the response and info chaps, the thing is, Im getting the paint for free. Thats IF I can get the colour information so as it can be ordered! Thats my very small quandary if you see what I mean. Very Happy

But anyway Im really glad that the project is actually going to get going now, I had so much trouble with my other bikes it's delayed the old Falcon.

I used VW Grey White (a commercial van Colour) for my Falcon which was a very close match.

Thanks, a VW colour would probably be easy to get! To be honest any white would have done me, Im not restoring the bike to concourse or anything, just to ride. but the mate thats getting me the paint asked what type of white? All I could think of was dover.

Paint Colour

I looked at lots of colours but most were cream with too much 'yellow' in them. VW Grey White is the colour of nearly every VW van you see on the roads. It is very obviously a cream colour but as the name suggests it is towards grey rather than yellow. It matched very well with some original paint I had on some Falcon 87 side panels, and with the original paint on my Fulmar 88.
