Vehicles (17 Jan 2019)
You can now add the vehicles you own to your profile as little icons that appear in your profile and alongside your posts.
This is a bit of an experiment. Take a look under the "REWARDS" menu across the top of the screen for the vehicles "ADD/MODIFY" option.
Let me know how you get on.
Suppliers/Dealers or anyone selling with a commercial view in mind CANNOT post here unless responding to a specific request of a member in a "wanted" post.
Suppliers include people "breaking for spares" on a regular basis, when purchasing spares members should ask a supplier what they contribute to the running of the forum particularly if contacted by a Private Message

Jimny "Shinsei" edition - yellow color code
Those Jimnys have a particular shade of yellow body color.
As far as I know, that edition has been sold exclusively in Italy for the last couple of years only.
Here are a few examples:
Does anyone at least know where to search for the color code or who to ask?
But cant be certain without a vin number or a comparison. If you go to PPG Paint IT you can search all models and what colours they come with, but not always that good on limited cars
Norwegian 01 Jimny
2” Trail Master
215/75-15 -15 offset wheels
And a mention of it being a 1970's "Dark Yellow" Paint Code?
Here too - autonetmagz.net/suzuki-jimny-shinsei-a-s...nor-its-elder/28609/
It's the same colour as the old LJ ! -
is It Sunday Yet?
I found out that Shinsei was a one-time limited edition of 100 vehicles, sold only in Italy. Each vehicle had a small metal plate inside with inscribed X/100 number, where X indicates which one of the 100 vehicles that one is.
I can confirm S200KYS's findings that the color is called "1970s Dark Yellow" and that it should (more or less) be the same color as used on the LJ20 back in the days.
However, the only question is which color code is that old 1970s color.
Does anyone know of an Italian Jimny forum etc. where such a question could be asked?
The alternative ZWH color is a relatively close match, but I think that it is a bit darker.
Here is an example piece in that factory color (every photo camera takes pictures a bit different though):
The Suzuki color code should be: SVO
Source of information is this 3rd party list of many Suzuki color codes:
The description for "SVO" color code is "SHINSEI DARK YELLOW 70’S". It is listed under the category of non-metallic colors.
However, I can not find any real-life examples of vehicles painted in this color code through my searches on the Internet.
Can anyone else get any more info or confirmation if this is the correct color code? For example someone with proper access to Suzuki's databases?
Also some info on which vehicles apart from Jimny Shinsei were painted in this color, and possibly some pictures?
