I thought the GT paint code for red was C7P irrespective of what your country called the red, eg Lightning Red.

Yes I think thats right, though I think he wants the full code number, which I can't find at present.


I think I am right in saying the Subaru San Remo Red is a metallic though.

Ok, cheers Senna. Tell me, you haven't got chips too!
No, but like the Imperial Empreror, "I have foreseen everything" and asked for a touch up pen when I ordered the car!

I have only done 350 miles and holding back on long runs until I Get the touch-up...

Strange that they're using the same colour code but the one is metallic and the other not.

This one doesn't look metallic:

but I don't know what the colour code is.

Subaru San Remo red is a flat paint, not metallic.
We use the Chipex touch up kits on our vehicles, the colour match is spot on and the best bit is you get a blending solution in the kit.
How it works is you paint the chips, let the paint dry and wipe over with the blending solution and it takes off any excess paint so no big blobs all over your lovely new paint work

That sounds great. I see they're quite a bit more expensive but probably worth the extra money considering the finish you should be able to get.


I've had the whole front of my car covered in 3M clear film so chips shouldn't be a problem but you never know what could happen to the rest of the car.
