Lynn, materials are Base/clear.........


The color was custom mixed by me, the roof is a dark blue metallic (very fine metallic) to compliment the body.


As always photo's can't depict the colors accurately, absolutely stunning in person however.


Eddie stated that an F-car aficionado claims it is very close to what Ferrari offered in 1958, and very few samples exist to compare with.


The original color is not known only speculated.

Shaun:

If you don't mind, what brand of paint?

Thanks for posting pics of the progress. I know when I get buried in something, I rarely go get the camera.

I am Curious Mr. Galveston, did Mr. Montini exclaim any muttered Italian swear words and or any obscene wild hand gestures during the installation of the rear end? Perhaps a video would be a better choice of capturing the moment! ;>))

Well...it's really difficult to photograph this color, I've tried all different lighting, indoors, outdoors, shady, etc.


Due to the composition of toners it's no where near Azure, these toners are not used in production line of late models.
