Lovely. What were the paint colours? I have a 92 rockhopper comp that needs a touch up. The yellow / lime looks close.

@Adrian - thanks for the sizing and link on those pedal bolts. Saved me a job dude :-D

Not sure unless you want the dulux names/codes :LOL: , working in a hardware store I found it easier to match the decals to a colour card as opposed to a screen copy of RAL codes, the green was picked as it went nicely with it, then just gave them to the shop who passed them to the young man who paints army trucks for a living!

Re: Overbury's Pioneer 1988 - now with paint and decals

I can't answer your BB question but that colour has to be marmite as i can't see every body liking it and tbh and i wasn't so sure about it until i saw it clear coated then it was a 100% yes !! so i'm well looking forward to seeing this completed :)..
