I have an 1999 Autosleeper Legend and need to find what  colour white the cab is to enable me to buy the paint. I would also like the skirting colour that goes around the whole vehicle (dark grey colour).
Also would anyone know where to obtain it?

There should be a label some where with the paint code, maybe on door pillar or in the engine bay.

A local paint repair shop may offer some help if needed.

I say there should be, as that is where I have found it on my vans and cars.

Sorry not sure about the skirting.

Best of luck.

As Richard advised above, there should be a paint colour/code label - note that this will be related to the base vehicle manufacturer (Peugeot, Fiat, VW etc) rather than Autosleeper.

The colour may be shown as a code which will help track it down, e.g from Halfords website:


"The Halfords Peugeot 'Bianca White' car spray paint is an exact match for the Peugeot codes: EWP, P0WP, P3WP & 249."

The Legend is on a Ford Transit , these are the colours of the years quoted....

Ford Transit Diamond White ZA 1972 onwards
 Ford Transit Ivory White 3MP 1985 onwards 

Skirt colour is Austin Rover / Land rover Slate Grey.

The colours will have weathered over the years. An automotive paint supplier will scan the actual paint and give you an exact match.

All ways a risk that a 20 year old van has been resprayed at some time.

Take Pauls advice and get the paint scanned to be sure of a true match.

When our N reg Duetto was repaired the paint shop said it should be diamond white according to the paint colour but it was ivory white. They took a sample to a paint specialist to make sure it matched.
One of my Landrovers was BMC champagne not white as I presumed.
As others have said the best guarantee of a match is scanning.

As a light aside, BMC had a colour  "Snowberry White".     The trade used to refer to it as "No very white" hugegrins
