Knockoffnut and Phil, thanks for the good eyes. That's what happens when I'm looking at threads at midnite.

It looks like Medici Blue in the picture while on tour, but the blue one that looks like the same car in the garage definitely doesn't look like Medici Blue.

George S has painted his car Medici Blue and maybe can help with a paint match or color. His was parked next to my old original paint Medici Blue and it was remarkably close. He is on the forum here as Cab___ something.

My car is going to be painted and I like the blue Elan in the Orange Blossom Trail tour. The blue seems to be like Mariner Blue used on the early Miata/MX-5, so that's what I'm planning on. Silver bumpers too.

I'm using a small paint shop, which is nice because I can visit almost anytime to discuss the project with the guys.

I believe that is Lotus French Blue on the orange blossom tour car, and yes it does look very nice!
