The Medici Blue is going on. We were able to match the color from an area underneath the tail lamps. The inside
of the doors were also wearing the original blue so we had two good references for the color.

Looks great Ken! The S2 Elan that I am working on was also Medici blue. It is almost ready for paint. Can I get your paint formula?

Thanks,

I will contact the painted and see what number he has for the color.

What the story with all the glass work on the headlamp area ?
Was it cracked?

By the way, 4448 the red car I have that you did is still looking good. I'm starting the get a few cracks on the edge of the rear fender lip and interestingly, the left rear quarter is cracking. These are very fine and I only noticed them when I was waxing the car. Can I get them repaired under warranty ? :)

The S2 I'm working on now has had some previous body work done including a new/used front clip. The openings for the headlight pods were way too big on top and missing the fiberglass lips on the bottom edge that keep things from flexing.

If I recall on your car, the inner lips were ground off of the rear fenders for tire clearance. That will eventually cause stress cracks.

Sorry, warrantee is up. My buddy Paul always jokes about the 50 feet/50 seconds warantee that he provides....
