This is a Landrover color, I have a Disco in Coniston green. Thinking about painting my '70 GT-6+ in this color. Very similar to one of the versions of BRG. Looks good!

Yes. It is a Land Rover color. I had a guy paint it for me after I did all the body work, prep & prime. He tried the original color which was "Brooklands Green", but it wasn't even close to what the original was. He said it was because the type of paint, and how many coats they put on back then made the color get darker with each coat. Anyway he hook the car to the body shop he works at and scanned the color and let the computer decide what color out there was closest to the original. It came up with Coniston Green.
It reall y is a nice color, and very close to BRG.
