It looked like the one to the left on the bottom. Maybe it's not quite hunter green, but still a lot darker and more green of a green than the Aztec and Tahitian.
As usual, you're extremely helpful.

I recently purchased a 1994 Honda civic dx hatchback. It needs a few small things repainted...like the front bumper and the tailgate. Problem is.. the previous owner removed the inner paint code sticker from the driver's side inner door jamb.

I have looked at numerous pictures of Aztec Green Pearl Clearcoat (BG-29P) which was offered from 1993-1994. I can almost swear that this is my color code, but in alot of pictures it looks too green to match my car.. sometimes my car looks more blue at times
I began to look at pictures of Tahitian Green Pearl Clearcoat (BG-28P) which was offered exclusively in 1992. My car almost seems to look identical to this color at certain times of the day, but in direct sunlight it looks like aztec

I am not totally sure if the car has been resprayed by the previous owner. Maybe. It seems to be original (i.e. no tape/paint lines. no overspray. nothing oddly out of place) The front bumper is painted like the 92 should be (black louvers where the fogs would be. I'm pretty sure 92s are black louvers)
I am just somewhat lost as to what color I have and was trying to narrow it down before I just guessed at which one it was and had the parts resprayed. It could possibly even be another factory color like paradise blue/green pearl...idk..

The colors just look too close for me to tell. Can anyone post up pictures of Tahitian green egs and also Aztec green egs? would be totally cool to get a pic of both side by side..doubt that would happen.

Here is mine

any help would be greatly appreciated
I really can't see the car because the picture is all sideways.... WHATE IS THAT CIVIC DRIFTING??? That's so JDM

Dude just call a Honda dealership, ask for the parts department and they call tell you the paint code for your car. P.S. you need to give them your vin number so have it ready.

Why don't you take it to a shop and have them take a shot of the paint? I don't know if it'd give them an exact code, but they could match it up real well with the spectro cameras they use or w/e they're called. Point is, is that they can match custom or seemingly custom paint.

Get the VIN, take it to the dealership. /thread


But if you don't care what color it really is, or what the code is, take it do a shop and have them blend the paint. You will never know the difference, that is the way painters are trained to paint, to fool the eye. He could spray what he is trying to blend a completely different color, but if he knows how to blend really well then you could never tell the difference.

OP did you look inside the glovebox?

Most body shops that repaint will put that sticker you talk about and restick it in the glovebox.

I thought the same thing when this happened to mine they repainted it but didn't put the door jam sticker back , I was pissed off and later found the sticker stuck to the inside of the glovebox.
