    Know the colour?

    Looking around the tintyweb I came across this.
    I have no idea what the kit is but does anyone know the car and more importantly the colour?
    Is it possibly the Fiat 131 Mirafiorri Abarth and/or 127 Sport Orange?

    The car is a Hawk which was originally painted in orange as per the photograph. The car is now in Repsol livery. The owner is Alan Haynes know as Skelly on the forum.

    It's neither, and it's not a car colour.

    Alan asked the paint mixers to scan some orange plastic household appliance he brought along.
    I can't remember what it was?

    Having seen Alan's car in the flesh, I'd say Lotus Chrome Orange is pretty similar, as actual car colours go.

    It's even a lighter orange than the car I had, and that's saying something.


    'Better still, would be:

    Alfa 'Arancio 601', because it was both a Miura and Montreal colour, and you can't get more Bertone than that?

    Thanks for that.
    The Miura was included in my minds eye of the colour,but had not realised the Montreal had that colour too.
    I'm not au fait with the fibreglass/gel coat thing and wonder could it be a gel coat?

    I'm not 100% on this, but I think it can be mixed like paint. If you look at the RAL Design range, it is far more comprehensive than the RAL classic colour range. You should be able to find an Orange you like from there. https://www.e-paint.co.uk/ral_design...s.asp?Design=2
