Is it the original paint? If so Suzuki will tell you from your reg number/chassis number.

A bit of an update, chassis is now complete and iv bolted everything back on. Chassis and axles are painted in por 15. Had to make radiator mounts and notch the chassis for the power steering pump to allow adjustment. Made both propshafts now although not pictured. The underside of body is painted and should be bolted down for the final time by the end of next week. Then i can see about painting the body and getting it running.

Thanks, still to source the paint for the body, in 2 minds what to do. Do like you said and get correct code from suzuki or paint it the same as i have underneath which is a non mettalic colour match.

Few underside pics. Aiming to get it running in the next week or so. Then body can be painted and everything back together. Still have the diffs to swap and an exhaust to make.
