Disclaimer. I would like to stress that I can not be taken responsible for mistakes in these part numbers and colour codes. Have a look at the Disclaimer and the explanation of these codes. Furthermore I would like to stress that new paints and old paints almost always can't be applied together because of their chemical composition. The adhesion force of new paints can differ from that of old paints.
