That's a very handy site, its good it even shows the correct carpet type!

Now I just need to figure out which version of the City logo is right for an 1983...

Yes, for ages I couldn't figure out the correct colour code for my shade of red for my mini until I saw this site. There is no stamp on the VIN plate for the colour code or trim.

Emberglow (CMN) is the only shade that has cream decals. Everything else matched up too. Unfortunately, these old paints oxidise so much they don't represent their original colour.

Yours gonna be the City and Stripe 10, 11, CTWOMEY?

My dads mini had that, even repainted a 1/24 scale model of it last year for his 60th..couldnt get the wheels off without destroying them to change them to 10" steelies :P

From research, mine just had the CITY on doors and boot lid, I dont think minispares carry these in any other colour than silver so may need to draw them and get them cut myself

Yes, that's the one. Exactly same model as you dad's Nautilus Blue but in Emberglow Red, same colour decals.

Thanks for sharing, lovely photo to have.

Sticky Fingers (Martin Cull) is the man for decals. Many of us know him personally from attending IMMs over the years. He will do either standard or custom decals if you want. I used him for the side stripes on my Clubby estate.

That's great Billy. I will keep the old wings with the decals on it for reference.
