What's the paint code on the plate on the inside of the passenger door?


GMK White Gold 1992-1994
NMN White Diamond 1985-1995
NNG White 1991-1996


NND White Diamond 1990-2000

I think you'll find its NMN

You also have to account for 25 years worth of sun bake, outta the tin probably aint gonna cut it for a large panel.

I came across Rover paint code anomalies with my Cabriolet.
My car is painted Platinum Silver or paint code MNX..What I found out was there are 3 shades.
One has more Red in the mix, One has more Grey in the mix and the other is A Mix of both.
Your car could be the same so it may be worth doing a check on the Internet and also some of the auto refinisher suppliers and see what you come up with.

Also make sure you've not been supplied with Diamond White (which is a ford colour and very common), rather than White diamond which is a Rover colour.

Brill guys ! Really appreciate the help.. well it's meant to be nnd paint code but the colour seems to be more like a bluey grey ?!?! Instead of white Diamond and I can accept the fact colour fades over years due to the sun so I thought it may be different but not how it's has turned out :/ so you guys think it may be nmn code ?? I'll check that code instead abd get back to you :) that ks a lot guys and hat soon
