Thumbs up Re cutlass 95 convertible hood

Hi Guys, not been on here for a while as been doinf bits to the olds, still not really used it much as the weather in the uk is not the best! rain rain rain!!
As i have needed a new roof.
i am looking at a convertible top from Convertible Tops and Convertible Top Parts
my problem is that they list 3 white colours and i dont know which one is on the car, is there any way of telling the original colour type and other information from the chassis number ( vehicle identity number )if i were to post it on here as information like that in the uk is impossible to obtain.
Thanks in advance

phil

Not sure what to tell you on that one but you could always circumvent the problem by putting on a black top.

If the company really want your business they should send you a small sample piece of each color, that way you can match it up.
Tell them your issue, and ask them if there is anyway they could send you a small sample of each color, they should have scraps of each that they are just throwing away, if they are making the tops onsite anyway..

Other than that I'm not sure how to know the exact color, if they have a good photo of each you can only pick which one looks the best, of course it won't be the same as seeing the material up close, as colors vary from monitor to monitor, depending on your brightness/contrast/gamma and whatnot.
