I know it isn't your fault but, if there is one question asked anywhere on the Forum that forced the questioner to search the Boards before the question was posted, it's this question about paint codes.
Once again (do a Search using 'paint code' as the keywords and see what I mean) ...
No-one will tell you the paint codes for your bike because:-
1. if anyone knows the original ones, they are meaningless today;
2. a very small number of people in the world have spent a very great deal of time mixing and testing modern paint to match original Triumph colours. Because they have spent so much time, they aren't about to tell anyone for free. :rolleyes:
The probable reason you haven't heard from RS Bike Paint (which isn't John Critchlow) is you're in Sweden, the company's in GB and they can't sell you any paint (which is how they make their money) because it's classed as 'dangerous goods' and thus no third-party carrier will carry it.
Ime, you have three options:-
A. Find the person in Sweden who has spent his/her time mixing and testing modern automotive paint to match original Triumph colours.
B. Visit RS Bike Paint in person, buy the paint and transport it back to Sweden yourself (but don't tell anyone on the ferry or plane).
C. Look through your chosen sprayer's colour 'chip books', find the colour(s) you like and have him/her spray your bike in those colours.
