    Dashboard color Austin A40 Devon 1948

    Hello my. Name is Bruno Duchesne Canada / Quebec / Saguenay / ville de la baie Area, so maybe you can help me? Here痴 my question, I知 restoring an Austin A40 Devon 1948. I知 almost done painting black and I知 looking for the right color for the dashboard and windows interior. I saw on photo of Gold And beige rather pale and brown which seems to me the standard but what was original? Is it possible to find the code of this color? Is there anyone in your group who has already solved this question? Thank you in advance. Bruno Duchesne.

    Yes thanks, I am also a member of ACCC and they do not have the information, a member told me that this color should be shiny gold. But I have no details on Gold's nuance and I'm not convinced ... I thought rather a brown color, coppery satin?
