Renault Rapport Colour

Post by Camp Freddy on Tue Dec 31, 2013 9:48 am

Hi all.  I am a newbie and have just purchased my first van.  It is a Renault Rapport and was registered in 1990, though I suspect built in 1989.  The van is 'tatty' and has had the rear wheel arches repaired (badly) at some point.  I don't suppose there are any repair panels out there? Does anyone know where I can find a paintcode on the van and a paint supplier.  I believe it is called 'Coral Beige'.  Many thanks.  Mark

Hi Mark,
Welcome to the forum  wave and to the world of Trafic motorhomes  biggrin 

There should be a sticker under the bonnet with the paint code. I don't think it's included in the oval plate number but it could be ?
The code is usually Carmargue Beige 162 or Renault Beige 170, but if you want to touch up rather than respraying the whole van, you would be better going to a paint supplier and having the existing colour matched up, it will have faded by now and the original colour will probably not match.

Can't think of anyone who does repair panels. You could ask here: http://www.clevelandpanels.com/renault.html
But they don't list the earlier model Trafics on the website.  If you find some, let me know.

Hi Frank

Many thanks for your welcome and reply.

I will investigate under the bonnet for a paint code.  At this point, I only want to touch up the bad bits and will take your advice.  My local motor factor should be able to match the (faded) paint on the van.

I'll have a look at the web site you've suggested and let you know if I have any luck.  I will probably have to fabricate some though.

Regards, Mark

If you don't find the plate under the bonnet you may find on the front face at the step on the drivers door. 
The code should be the last three digits at the bottom of the oval, camargue beige is 139 that was the colour of my 1992 Holdsworth Rainbow Renault Trafic
