Interesting the way the 2 throttle cables are routed. Any shots of the pedal linkage inside?

Love the color, which is darker than Medici I believe. Not sure what that color is, but it's very pleasing to the lines of an Elan in my opinion

No, it's hard to tell the color, but it's not the Miata blue, it could be Ford Grabber Blue, but without a car next to it, I could just be imagining things.

Russ,

Indeed it looks like Ford Grabber blue.

I'm thinking the color is FRB like the painted the MATRA's in the 60's

George,

Is there really a true FRB? Kinda like a true BRG. It seems that as long as car used a shade of one colo(u)r, then it was acceptable. I agree that the color looks very much like the MATRA in the picture though. Bottom line is it may not be everyones or anyones cup of tea, but I like it on the Elan.
