We got something like this in Sunnie the Brumby:

It was a bit cheaper than that. Use some nice mats to reduce wear.

Keep your factory floor liner under it or add some underlay to help with sound deadening, works a treat and adds a bit of luxury to your ute ;)

Had a bit more time to mess around:

Well, the air con still works well, so I'm good there with no leaks: Winner.

I've got genuine front bush's coming. Really prefer rubber than plastic.

Got a new windscreen rubber here, and the carpet and underlay have also arrived.

Got a new engine stay/support bush set (the one to the spare tyre well) coming also.

Not sure when I'll tackle this rust issue, but now for the question:

It's an 89 red targa: Even subaru can't tell me the colour code: It's either
946 Rio red
or
726 Splendor red

Anyone know?

Can you find the colour code sticker under the bonnet? It’s usually somewhere on the edge of the engine bay or on top of the upper radiator support panel.

I’ll have to go check mine and compare notes - it’s a red targa.

I recently saw a new XV with the red I want to respray my brumby in - but need to get it “good” in the body department first! And find time to strip it out and go through all the proper respray work to get it right (and awesome) the first time round.

Thanks Bennie. I can't see a colour sticker anywhere :(
