I recently contacted R-M again to get the current color code for the "49 green. They only showed a code for a color called Woodland Green which in their records showed being used on 1950-1953 MG's. Woodland was indeed listed as one of the colors for TD's. They also showed a green called Almond Green but they said that their records showed it was used on MG's from '61-72. Almond green however, was shown as one of the colors for TD's.
My question is this, which green was used for a '49 TC. I need to stick with R-M because of the primers and other products that I use in my paint work. I can get a pint of each and try them out but I figure that someone in this group knows whether the color is Almond or Woodland. Once I get this answer, I can get a sample and try it out to see if it is correct. Hopefully one of these is proper. It seems as if there are a lot of various greens used on our cars with most being different from each other. I'd like to start with what I think might be correct before I try to chase down what appeals to me but what not be correct.
