You were shown light BRG which was on the very early B. You probably want 
'dark' BRG which came in the mid 60's. The teglerizer site offer codes among 
other places.

  After waiting for my Very Trusted British Car Guy to make room for me 
for about 5 years (David B. MGA was in line ahead of me, and then 
something else, and then reconfiguring the paint booth....), I started 
looking for a local painter. The first one I found was really flaky, 
so after waiting for him to finish a Chevy by the end of December 
(AFAIK, still not done), I searched again.

The upside, my "red for now" MGB goes to the body man in about 3 
weeks. I did some major deconstruction yesterday to prep. The more I 
do, the less he has to do.

Anyway, two questions.

I want to repaint it green, but the BRG that I've seen is a little 
"yellow" for my tastes, and the original color (Tundra) is Right Out. 
My local parts house has PPG books, but they only go back to 1981.

However the (ick spit!) Triumph "Racing Green Poly" looked nice in a 
chip. Has anybody seen this color in the flesh. I'm looking for 
opinions as well, would a semi-metallic look right on the B?

Second, I've discovered as I took parts apart that not only do my side 
markers not work, they are broken. Since I'm spending more than I 
budgeted on the paint, new lamps from Moss are quite a lot of cash to 
spend (even with dealer discounts--I'm not asking for sales calls 
Ed). Is the quality there to justify the cost?
