Does anyone have a paint code for the 1967 eibar built JET 200 in metallic gold?

Have spoken to Rui and Antony (Buzz Solo) but they had the paint mixed specially, just wondered if anyone has a suitable paint code? It is the gold with the green hue in it..
Thanks Perry

As far as I know, there are no codes for older Servetas. You have to find a sample and get it matched. Lambretta innovations recently did a nice Gold Jet 200.

Thanks for the photo and link. i have tried searching for these gold JET's but like all things on the internet, it can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. Will contact Frank and see if he has a paint code.
Cheers, Perry

How different is it from the golden special color? More green?

Visibily different when you put them together. The Spanish gold is lighter sandier and with a hint of green in it.
In the end i have taken the plunge and had the original paint specially matched, just waiting to see how it turns out.

Hi Perry, how did you get on with Morrellis and have you got the paint yet?

Sorry Rui, was meaning to update this!

Got nowhere with Morrellis, as you mentioned the guy you dealt with has left and the people there didn't seem interested.
In the end, I ran out of time and so had the paint specially mixed to suit an original sample that i have. So the JET is now all painted and ready to start putting back together.
The finished paint exactly matches the original sample i have, i will just have to wait and see how it compares with other people's restored machines when i see them.
Overall i am pleased with it, will post some photo's when i have some progress.
Cheers, Perry
