Lotus Elan

Pics of Blue Elans Please

My two Elan projects have been sitting sidelined while I work on my S2 Seven. While I was cleaning it and removing parts I think I discovered that the most recent paint on it might actually be Medici blue! The paint is quite faded on the body work (the most recent registration on the car is 1976) and looks quite pale now, but when I pulled off the windscreen, in the area below the windscreen I found a patch of paint that was not faded and it looks like it might be Medici Blue. I was thinking of possibly leaving the paint as is, or reverting the car to the white, but now I would like to confirm if the blue is in fact Medici. At this point I would like to be able to mix up some PPG in Medici Blue and see how it matches the paint under the windscreen mounting, so I am wondering if any of you have a good match for Medici Blue in PPG codes (or another paint code which I might be able to cross reference, or mixing numbers)?

I will be painting another vehicle in my chosen colour to test it out. I will post some pictures when they are painted. Now all I need is some time to get the projects done...
