ID:	12741The colour was difficult - apparently the original colours were Lechler paint Codes (although no warranty as to accuracy of this info...):

    Blu 2644
    Azzurro Chiaro 2645

    After lots of faffing about we tracked down the light blue and in the 'flesh' it looked wrong. Too much purple, but maybe that was the 'out of the box' and they faded over time. The only genuine, unrestored (I think) car that I have ever seen in this colour is in the Righini collection (pic). So, with some trial and error, we made it up to try and match that car. Still not entirely convinced that it shouldn’t be the darker blue!

    The Righini car colour looks great . The Lister Bell version is RAL 5015 which is maybe a fraction darker but hard to tell without having them side by side.

    Great project and please keep us updated - and maybe come and see us at the Stoneleigh Show on 6th or 7th May ?

    Sounds great - thank you
    Not sure if you guys will share my interest, but am also restoring a 246 and have been struck by some of the similarities - and differences - between the two cars (presumably not accidental). Apologies if these pics are not correctly orientated - and no idea how to sort that little monkey - bah!

    Re: Matt's Stradale

    The brakes are ATE at the back (from the 246 and 308 - same as the originals I think) and the fronts - I should know - but I believe they are '70's Girling competition callipers that were remade a few years ago. The blue is our mix of Lechler Code Azzurro Chiaro 2645, but it has more white in it.
    Best, Matt
