2 tone paint 2.8i

Post by The Duke » Sat Jan 30, 2021 1:08 pm

Hi,

I’m restoring an early 2.8i 4 speed. It’s an original grey/silver 2 tone and I’d really like to find out where the silver paint meets the grey paint in respect of the door shuts? I’d like to keep things as accurate as possible. Currently it’s a bit scruffy after a mediocre resto years ago so can’t really tell. Anyone have any original pics with doors open so I can try and work this out.

Cheers in advance
Paul

Hi,
I found this, but it isn't factory paint job:

If you scroll down to interior photos, there are plenty from door area.

Cheers Tom,

It’s different to what I have but I think I prefer it. It’s not going to paint for a month yet so I’ll see if I can get any more info in the mean time.

Cheers
Paul
