    Thread: Paint code
Post: RE: Paint code

KMP is Rhodes Blue. It's a reasonably unusual colour on a 306, so hard to find panels for. As far as I can tell, it was a ph2 colour just available on S and T reg Meridians.

As it's from a Citroen ZX then I'd say it won't have had an ECU with electric advance, however it looks to have the armour over the stop solenoid so was off a car with an immobiliser, but I believe pe...

Glad to hear it's working! Does look a bit like someone has done something with those black and green wires in the past, but doesn't matter now, you can ignore them since it's all running!

Where does the other end of that thick wire lead to on the pump? – I’m assuming it goes to the back of the plug bit on the pump. Since you’ve connected the red wire to the stop solenoid, you don’t nee...

I don't think you need the blue plug connected, I left mine off when doing it. Just the red wire to the solenoid it what was needed electronically for it to run
