I thought he couldn't really be bothered while writing that one. Just going through the motions.

Hi Wayne,
The dark green is very similar to Ford Pine Green (that's what I've used on mine).

I would say that the other green looks like a generic olive green.

Hey Andrew,

I went with your advice and painted the brake pipes Pine Green, I primed all the copper lines with etching primer and then painted them, the end result is fantastic and it helps break-up the Black engine bay as well.

Thanks mate

Thanks Wayne, I'm only too happy to help whenever I can.

I, and I'm sure many others too, would love to see some photos of your finished work.

Andrew.
