So for all you N600 fans out there. If you had the choice what factory color would you pick to have your car painted if it were free?

Depends if you are talking factory US colours or Colours available in Japan.

I've seen a nice dark metallic green on on the web somewhere. I'm going dark met blue with a cream white pearl strip over mine. It's currently that mustard yellow and I'm not a fan. I've seen silver and bright blue ones in Japan and they look good, Red always looks good but there are quite a few out there already.

How are you getting it done for free?

Nope, not that colour, from the looks of that colour chart I reckon it was Alluvial Gold. Thanks for that, the colour chips would help heaps though.

Hi everyone,

I'm the proud owner of a french blue N600. But I'm desperatly looking for the color code of the original color. After many talks on a french forum, we suspect that it must be the MET NASSAU BLUE PB-51-M. Anyone can confirm ? The problem is that the original formulas are available, either ICI or Honda, but I found no french pro able to reproduce it with modern paints.

This is what the original color is looking like

This is what the engine bay is looking like nowadays. But I don't like this blue, made by a local paint shop for me. To my mind, it doesn't fit enough the original colour.

Thank you for any tip. Pierre

Does the blue car in France have red interior? The blue on the car now is as you mentioned not a perfect match.

I wish they have, but I've only seen black ones. Never been sold red in France. :cry:

Yes. I would have painted the whole car with this blue if I had liked it. But I do not like this color :td: . I'd like better the original blue :tu: .

The blue pictured above is nassau blue. My n600 had been repainted the same color at some point in its life. I personally really like that color.

As for paint suppliers in your area not being able to match the color. Im guessing its because of the metalics being too large? They also should be able to use the machine to color match. There is a site online that I found that has the conversion from the old color codes to modern formulas. I'll search for it when I get home and post the link.
