Looking for paint colour suggestions Monaro and Mini

Recommended Posts

Hello all

In 1969 it seems that Norm Beechey ran a Monaro and Peter Manton a Mini it what may have been a team. Both cars were painted blue with yellow and red stripes.

Here a some links to pictures of the cars

But as you can see there is different shades depending on the light and direction, so it might be a case of near enough is good enough  :)

Thanks for those photos Gazza they are very useful.

Question is what is electric blue? I also read that they painted the car 'Shell blue' for the 1969 season. But then what is that :)

In some photos it looks like it look a bluey grey...

I had look and think Vallejo Andrea Blue looks close

I probably should have mentioned in the opening post that I am colour blind :)

 

Well it doesn't matter what the colour is, does it

You could try having a look at the paint section in auto accessory shop like Repco.

The Dupli-Color DST219 Tidal Blue might go close and it's metallic.
