Thanks.

The early S1 cars were body coloured but it seems they may have changed after the flat floor and/or welded louvred finished
The Jaguar concours guides call the scoop colour "medium silver / grey with a slight metallic finish"
Pretty sure it should be smooth finish and not hammered
I’ve not seen a paint code yet
It’s possible they varied
