FX Paint Colour - Confirmed

Although my FX ute is a long way off finished I finally confirmed the exterior paint colour, it will be an original colour - Glenn Green.

I want to use an original colour for the interior trim as well, i have bought the Don Loffler books which have a wealth of information on paint and trim colours and from what i can see the FX ute only had 3 x trim colours available - brown, walnut brown and merridan grey. Is this correct? does anyone know what colour trim goes best with Glenn Green?

If my ute had a plate stating what the original paint and trim colours were i would stick with it however mine had none when i purchased it.

If anyone has any photos of an FX or FJ ute paint Glenn Green with maybe an interior shot that would be great.

GM Day Perth Bassendean Oval 21/11/2010

Not a bad turnout of cars but this was my favorite on the day. Is a red and white EK (I Think).
Was the only Forced Induction straight six at the show.
There was also a nice EH with a stroker HP block and Yella terra 12 port.

water leaking from rear of engine

i put the radiator and radiator support on the ute chassis today and hooked up all the water hoses, i WAS going to run the engine til it was warm to see if it was all good before i started the body work on the cab

i did start it before i put the radiator in and ran it for 10-15 secs and it ran sweet

BUT... as soon as i put water in the radiator it started to drip out the back of the engine!!! (you can see a small puddle starting in the pic)

i took the inspection plate off and it looks like it's dripping out of the rear seal, but i suspect it's dripping from higher up and just looks that way

i'm thinking a welsh plug? is there any in the rear of the engine that would leak like this? i just don't want to pull the gearbox off for no reason
