Original rx4 sunset purple help please

#1 Post by eatavl1 » Wed Jan 20, 2016 12:25 am

Hi guys, I have an original rx4 series1 in sunset purple, colour code PB,
Car has been off the road and untouched since 1992. Paint is very old/tired but it looks
Brown to me. I want to keep it original as the car is complete. Only thing killing me is
The colour. Has anyone got a picture of an rx4 in that colour that has good paint
I can see? Any suggestions would be great or should I change it to another factory rx4 colour?
Be mindful it's got white interior that's in excellent condition and want to keep it white.

Sorry for a late reply, but I also have sunset purple S1 sedan with white interior. Mine also looks brown rather than purple, but inside door jambs etc. min is definitely a more purple colour, almost marone but more purple.
