thanks for the prompt response. What about the lower half of the car?
I dont think its midnight blue though.
Midnight blue is way darker, almost blackish.. This is a clear shade of blue..

I had a 500SEL that was midnight blue 904. It was dark but definitely blue. The picture of the back end looks very similar in color. The other image looks close but a little off. Maybe a metallic paint. Maybe it was repainted. It looks like they painted the mirror backs. The cladding looks body colored. The 904 cars I remember had gray cladding.

It looks like "Black Opal" to me, color code is either 197 or 198, but that would be a color which was not yet available for W126s. It also
could be "Lapisblau" color code 932.

Might as well pull of the fuel filler door and have a good paint shop match it up. You may guess the wrong color and end up having to color match it anyways. By the way, very nice W126. Later.

Dear all,
I couldnt get the car colour code the last time, and decided to stick to the old paint.

Now car is being sanded down & prepped for paint.
May i get some help with these colour codes.

Thanks in advance.

**Would appreciate if we could say which code is for which car.
**Car No. 1, No. 2, No. 3, No. 4, No. 5, No. 6, No. 7, No. 8.

Roy.

The first one you asked about does indeed look like nautic blue. It was a popular W126 colour in the UK and the W126 suits it well in my opinion.

The lower half whatever colour it is is painted with satin lacquer.

I believe the second picture (an SEC) is Black Pearl. Can be Poly or Metallic (like mine).

This. Definitely too light* for 904. If you google "mercedes paint codes" several sites will come up to direct you to the right code, and/or give you some more options

roybasilias,
You PM'ed me asking for the paint code of the bumper/lower cladding. Sorry, I don't know it, but I had the lower part painted to match the top part. I think the paint code is 702, Smoke Silver. I could be wrong and that is why I am posting it here for correction if I was wrong.
You asked for more photos. So here it is.

Jaconab,

Is the car 702 silver as well? Looks like a light tone of gold.
