    Is Papyrus close to a Beige colour or closer to a light grey (grey'ish white)?
    Every picture or video i look at, the colour looks different.

    Thanks
    Andy.

    Thank you. Many of the pictures and videos i look at it does seem a beige type of colour. In others they look like a very light colour. I know i can get the correct colour shipped from Germany, but i don't fancy litre's paint going so far through the postal system. I'm not after a perfect match, just some thing fairly close.

    I took my car to my local paint supplier to get some paint for touching up and found a spot on match which is a fiat colour it was called grey but they said it's not grey it's beige and agreed with me that it's hearing aid beige I'm away at the moment laying round a pool in feuraventura when I get back ill see if there's a code on the tin it may be of use to you it was £12 for 1/2 litre

    Hearing aid beige. Hehehe. Next time i see my mother i will pull her hearing aid out and compare it to various picture. :D
    Yes a code would be great. Never thought a flat colour would be a close match.

    Thanks
    Andy.

    Just get a can from trabantwelt. It matches up perfectly.

    If kev the builder can't get a code then i might buy 1 rattle can to get the correct colour or end up buying 3 or 4 litres from the German ebay seller.

    Ral 1015 seems to look close. Possibly also RAL 1013.
