Lagoon Blue paint

PostPost by: Mick6186 » Tue Dec 06, 2016 11:51 am

I am rebuilding a +2 130/5 and all the mechanical work is done. The car was originally Tawny metallic but was re sprayed in the 1980's in Lagoon Blue. The paint was fairly good with a few micro blisters on the bottom of one front wing. There were no cracks or other defects that I could see so I was going to leave the paint. However when storing my summer garden table in the garage rafters 'disaster' the four seperate legs decided to make a break for freedom and headed for the car!! With Gordon Banks reflexes I managed to parry three but one got through and took a big flake of paint off of the rear wing. This has resulted in a decision to respray in Lagoon Blue.
Does anybody know a source of Lagoon Blue metallic in cellulose.
Thanks,
Mick

I believe Lagoon blue was originally a Renault colour, though that's just for interest. Matching from the Lotus paint code should not be a problem, I buy my cellulose from Jawal Paints and have had excellent colour matching from them.
