Search "haynes" and "diesel repair" and you should find a good book on the 5,7D. I have one, and it has been a blessing for me and my oldsmobiles. Unfortunally i cant help you with any of the other questions you have on colour, etc.. BUT... Since FR is a EU country, i think you can find some parts in sweden for your car at affordable prices. Look for "osby skroten" http://www.bildelarosby.se/

There were quite a lot of the diesels that were sold new in sweden, so there should be possible to find decent parts at a good price..

Good luck!
