that colour chart is all over the place:

my westy is orange L20B and it looks nothing like the swatch on that card above:

does dosn't it - love 'mayan green' if it is infact that. Although not sure if it'll suit the polo:

I think that mk1 golf is Loftan green. I might be wrong tho

Would look mint on a polo!

yeah that Golf is the same colour as the '76 Polo I broke a while back. The owner told me that it was "lofotten" (leaf) green too...

I think I read somewhere that it's a custom shade? (1st pic posted)

sorry for the thread hijack but yeah, loads of stuff. Problem is, I'm in Ireland so it doesn't make sending parts to the UK easy :(

I have the 900cc engine, gearbox, front suspension, rear axle, carpets, seats, various trim bits, windows, doors, one wing, wheels, rear panel etc etc etc ;) I was able to use the nice chrome side window trim on my Derby and a few sections of the body were cut out and used to repair the Derby too.
