Hi, Douglas,

I'm not familiar with POR15 "MG Maroon" but would hazard a guess it might be 
their version of the color used on MGA and MGB engines. This was definitely 
more maroon than the color originally used on TC/TD/TF engines. The T 
version was a lighter, browner red than the shade used on As and Bs.
