1960'es Dunlop wire wheel paint colour code

Hi! My name is Kenneth, I live in Denmark.

I'll try this Forum to see if any luck here!

I have a 1964 Sunbeam Alpine.


I really do hope that some of you are able to help me with the original paint code for the Dunlop wire wheels, which among other British car manufactors The Rootes Group used for some of their vehicles back in the 60'es.

I'm in the process of restoring an original set of original Dunlop wire wheels, and actually I've been that for quite a while, since I can not find the needed infomation on the original paint code Dunlop used for their wire wheel. I've been told from a MGA guy, who claim to have an original paint can from ICI Belco P031-2358 (Meralichrome Aluminium) which he is quite sure is the correct and original colour, but I can not find any further paint info. anywhere, nor any people that can be of much help, in order to have the original paint mixed. Also I have a scan of an old Rootes Group wire wheel drawing, that says that the correct colour should be Platinum finish, which makes me even more confused!

Please let me know if anybody can be of any assistance, or maybe know someone who can.

Thank you very much.

Kind regards
Kenneth Hansen
