Hi Andy
I don't suppose you or anyone else knows the name and paint code of the lovely blue Ferrari further back in this thread?
I want to paint the Kalifornia we are currently building in this colour.

It appears to be a metallic finish so can't be from the period.
To me it looks like Blu Chiaro (Glasurit FER 503/C) though it could be Blu Tour de France (PPG 522) or (PPG 522/C). These are all Ferrari colours.

BTW, if you don't mind non-Ferrari colours, Ford Deep Impact Blue is a contemporary colour (easy to get touch up) and might look good.

Sorry Richard, I don't know, but think there are some really knowledgeable people (Y Cymro has already replied) reading the thread. Hopefully they can help.

BTW - Hope all is well with you? I saw a great picture of you in the kit car mag with the bonnet open! Talk soon, Andy!

It looks very much like Ford Midnight Blue . Perhaps midnight blue base with wet look lacquer would come out well ?

I should imagine that Richard's looking for an eye-popping colour to attract attention and sell cars. The metallic blue shown above is certainly that. Personally, I like the Stirling Moss colour because it was driven by Stirling rather than it being an especially nice colour. I'd chose it even if he'd used brown!

I agree Sir Stirling is a great guy but I would like to use the Ferrari colour as it adds value to the car on resale. The coupe we are doing after this build with be a stirling replica. I thought about taking it to the NEC and getting him to sign the dash. If anyone knows the actual colour and paint code I would appreciate it.

If you google that colour it looks very dark on all the google images . The car in the photo earlier in the thread looks several shades lighter. Put that down to lighting , the photo , the camera etc . If you want a colour that looks like what you see in the photo print it off and take it to a good paint shop who will match what you see.

The car above definately isn't the same colour as Stirling's cars.

Finished the front end wiring today, fully tested and functional, Wires also in place for fog lights when fitting after much more work is completed.

Oh and 55 tyres fitted on all corners now. Standard rear suspension is too high for my liking so going to install coilovers on rear so I can adjust as required, fine tuning if you like. I've noticed on the front that the tyres just rub up against the inside wheel arch on full lock, so will be adding 5mm spacers to fronts as plenty of arch space for wheels to come out a little.

I use a ~1m length of 2.25" plastic waste pipe. It engages the bonnet catch spring/pins at the top and a convenient bolt head by the radiator. It lives in the boot but could be stowed under the bonnet using "Terry" clips.

Hi Eric,

Do you have any pictures of the installation of the door panels and the door handles with the lock mechanism?
