It will be good to see a daylight photo rather than under fluorescent lights. What is the colour name?
Looks a little bit like my shade of blue. A shade darker than Viking Blue.

Peter its Viking blue, unfortunately the photo (camera phone) isnt a true depiction of the colour. In real life it looks a gorgeous colour. If the weather is kind next week there will be pics taken of it outside ;-)

Ah hah, Viking - the correct shade of blue for a ‘64 FIA.
Amazing how much darker it appears indoors. Perhaps that’s what went wrong with mine when they chose the nearest shade to Viking.
Simon you will need a ‘64 reg to go with this car.
We will look forward to seeing it finished.
Silverstone or even Cranleigh?

Simon
I see you are not far away, over in Essex. May I ask who did the paint ? I am mulling over getting the BRA re painted.
Thanks

Congrats, that looks superb.

Interesting to see the amount of prep needed on your Instagram page, considering how both our shells came from the same place and where extra prep was needed to get it squared up. I can see the same areas on my shell but less so in others. I'm 52 hours into paint prep now and I'm completely sick of sand paper.
