E Type Paint Colours

The following links will take you to photographs of E Types painted in the colours shown. The pictures are intended only as a guide. You should consult with your paint supplier for exact colour matches and paint codes.

You may think some of the colours shown (such as black, for example) might be obvious, but we have shown them because it is sometimes difficult to visualize what an E Type might look like finished in a certain colour scheme.

Whenever the term 'opalescent' forms part of the description of the colour, it simply means 'metallic'. Opalescent metallics have much finer metallic particles, and are more subtle in appearance than modern 'mica' and 'pearl' paints.

We hope the pictures are of some use to you.
