Help with Color

I am having My D 110 repainted and had a scan done of the color and they do not come up with a LR match. I thought it was either Oslo Blue or Cairn Blue but now a little confused. The truck was painted in england in the last couple of years (you can tell becuase there are drop of clear coat on it) but must have been someones own color makeup. I am posting pictures and if anyone has any idea please let me know. I would rather have a true LR color but I do like this one. Thanks.

That's a nice color. If you like it, why repaint; or is it to fix the clear coat probs?

Yeah, that doesn't look like cairns or Oslo. Oslo is a dark blue a bit on the purple side, and cairns has more of a blue-black tone to it, with no red at all. That doesn't mean it's not an LR color, it might be an old P38/disco blue, I dont know those colors very well. Have you cruised the color thread looking for clues?

I would like to paint to refurb the clear coat and they did paint over the rust which I am going to try and remove.

I think it may be Land Rover Biarritz blue which was also Rover Tahiti blue.

Had a 300tdi in that colour a few years ago.....
