    Hey if anyone has a list of paint codes for all the original Sprinter colours that would be awesome, I am looking for the original white, not sure if i should go with the original or a really bright gloss white. Any help is appreciated thanks

    The white colour for 1983 cars was 038. From about 1984 onwards, the white used was 041. 041 is a slightly dirty white, probably the most unexciting colour ever. It was also used on Taragos and ordinary cars like that. But on a Sprinter I like it better than the newer brighter whites (040, 061 etc), as it looks more original.

    HiLuxs and all commercial vehicles from the 80s- early 90s were painted in 045, a more creamy white, darker than the 041 of a Sprinter. It would be cool to see a AE86 done in 045, just to emphisize the dirty creamy colour. My mates KE25 got redone in 045 which suits it for the year. (Probably not a KE25 colour, but it looks right).

    151
    159 Medium Gray Metallic (1987)
    164 Silver Metallic
    202 Black (1987)
    204 Black Metallic (1986)
    23D Silver Metallic (164)/Medium Gray Metallic (159) (2 Tone)
    2M8 Silver Metallic (147)/Black (202) (1984)
    2M9 Red (3D7)/Black (202) (1984)
    2N2 White/Black panda (early)

    Thanks, thats just the info i was looking for. Although i like bright white, I want to keep my car looking as original as possible so i think I'll pick one of the Toyota colours, I'll get those 2 shades of white made up at the paint shop and pick the one I like best.
