So I've been sitting on these photos for a week or two. It's hard to pick up the colour correctly. In some photos the colour seem very blue, but in really life it's not the case. Happy to hear people's opinions, this colour was something that decided almost at the start of the project. It seems to be quite the trend though these days?

As for the finish I'm very happy with the quality of the paint job, I want to keep the original spot welds and factory deviations in the sheet metal as much as possible as I was never looking for a show car STYLE of car.

I like it,, bright but not too, and it will be a nice contrast to everything once installed in engine bay, Nice!

Thanks Gents. I'll obviously post some more pictures of the car once its finally painted. I'll try and push it out into the sun for more natural lighting conditions

What color is it ? Custom mix or a stock color ? Looks really nice!

Its a standard fiat colour. I don't have the exact name with me at the moment, but I'll endeavor to get for you if like.

The Fiat colors defiantly have the 70's feel to them. Period correct as they would say.

Waited 5 days before starting to put it back together, just to make sure the paint was hard... even though it had been baked!
