Fleetwood Garland Paintwork

Question

Posted

Hi, Im doing up a Fleetwood Garland and doing some repairwork to a few places on the front end, where the fibre glass has cracked. My question is this : does anyone know what the colour is called so I can source some touch-in spray paint?

Its a pale cream colour, and Im assuming its a Fleetwood basic colour, so if anyone can help with the colour name / code I'd be grateful.

Many thanks

~~ andy whitwham

Hi Andy, it may be worthwhile asking on the Fleetwood Owners Club website?

Thanks for the info Oldsalt..much appreciated...but the Fleetwoood owners club is quite expensive to join, and you have to be a member to post a new topic in their Forum , and, it says they arent taking new registrations at the moment either.

Andy, that is very odd. I can't think of another solution, other than asking them. I hope someone will be able to give you an answer?

Hi David,

I seem to remember its around the £20 mark to join the Fleetwood owners club, providing they are accepting registrations...but I'll shop around a little and see what type of paint I can find....Thanks for your help.... ~ aw

Try and find an easilly removable bit of your van Example toilet cassette door, Take this to a GOOD car bodyshop supplier, They will mix you a colour to match, Most will fill an aerosol for you,

Regards taking a door etc for colour matching, do make sure it actually matches as the paint fades differently side to side depending how the vans stored and how much sunlight hits it.

It's then also worth saying, even a perfect match when applied new will fade so change and show over a couple of years.

Try emailing Allan he answers loads of queries judging by the number of 'email query' posts he makes on the forum. You may not get an immediate response if they are away though with limited Internet connection.

      Yes a sad fact . my last three cars were mondeos .i loved the last one a 2.2 TDCI it had a slot for 6 cds which I loved . the one before was a Ghia estate built in sat nav. and the one before just basic .  All brilliant tow cars.  I have changed to a Kuga automatic . It is no where near as nice as my mondeo . The boot is small I’m not happy with it at all . I just keep comparing it . But it does tow very well.  I just have to get used to it I suppose unles can find a 3 year old top of the range one . The only one I saw last year was over 20K and bright red I couldn’t afford that and couldn’t have lived with the colour .

      I think the MK 3 Cortina was the first one I drove. It was a rental car from Aberdeen Airport. It was the first car I had encountered which had a single key for door and ignition, not to mention the first car I had driven with a steering lock. On the key ring was a short length of thick, stiff copper wire. The rental agent explained that they were having trouble with the Ford steering locks and before inserting the key, the copper wire was inserted and vigorously worked up and down to free the tumblers before the key could be inserted and  turned! My father had a Corsair 1600E, it kept randomly cutting out only to start again a few minutes later. This was eventually diagnosed as a plastic fuel filter mesh on the floor of the fuel tank. This was softened by petrol and getting drawn into the fuel line, the car stopped - the softened plastic floated out of the pipe and the car could be re-started - until next time! A friend had one of the last Cortinas, the factory had added all sorts of un-ordered stuff (presumably to use them up?). His 1100cc car came with Air Conditioning - the drawback was if you turned on the Air Con at the traffic lights, it would stall the car!     Cheers Keith
