I've been looking at colours, yes I know, build it first! But I quite like the below the only code I can find lists it as Light Green, but it doesn't look very light, anyone know it?

An auto puts no thrust on the crank so it should be good. Don't be scared of the Triumph 'box, they're easy.

Check the colour on THIS ACE, which I think is an Aston Martin colour, but boy does it look good!

Ken,
Regarding the color you're looking for, look into Ford's 1965 color code R - Ivy Green.

Several of the TR specialist (Revingtons etc) sell updated thrusts that banishes the problem completely. Might be worth a call...
