It's going to be a Porsche Emerald green now :) More green than it's previous shades, but a very nice colour IMO and probably period to its change to green in the first place

It's certainly green! :)

Actually, when it's on the car it does seem to have the slightly silvery finish of the previous Leaf Green. I look forward to seeing pictures as the job progresses.

The original was far more green than it looks on any of these pics anyway.....well it was to my eyes :)
The new colour is a subtle improvement, and the 10 layers of paint removed and associated weight will make it faster
