    Beautiful car.

    What color code is that may I ask?

    Thank you very much!

    The colour is Burnished Bronze - A-2568F

    That's a strange code! What does it say on your body plate under the hood? Burnished bronze should apparently be code 77.

    A-2568F: is that a BASF paint nomenclature? Seems consistent with their numbering.

    Yes, sorry 77 body code and A-2568F is the paint chip code, I just happened to have the paint chip sheet next to me lol!

    This is a FYI.
    There is absolutely no reason to bend that tab up with a screwdriver as shown. When you bend it up with the screwdriver it lessens the tension of the tab & when the wipers are running on fast speed, like in a heavy rain, the wiper will have a tendency to come off.
    The way is to just put thumb pressure with your thumb & push down on the tab. I've been doing this for 60 years & have run into people putting on their own wipers on with the results being a scratched windshield.
