    I've had Gattino Rosso (or "red kitty" in Italian) for 24 years but she hasn't been running until recently. She was originally Pale Primrose, with a black interior. I've made a number of upgrades to modernize the functionality but keep the original look. She should be fully road-ready in a week.

    I have a full set of photos from the restoration up on flickr, at:
    www.flickr.com/photos/cmphoto/sets/72157616023939437/

    There's a nice slideshow tool that will cycle through the shots.

    I also have a Facebook page on Gattino Rosso, at:

    If you're on FB, please come by, become a fan, and join in the discussions.

    What a superb looking restoration. What precisely is the paint colour you have used?

    Merci -- she's a lovely little beast, no doubt about it. As for color, I'd have to refer you to a formula. It's BASF Glasurit 55-Line, and arguably about halfway between Carmen Red and Regency Red in "brightness", but the most important aspect is that it's a more saturated red, without the orange bias of Carmen Red or the browns of Regency Red (or the blues of the maroons). It's also not opalescent or a pearl.

    (Oh, I forgot to add that I call the color "Rosso di Passione", or Passion Red. But the XKEData list didn't include that as an option. ;-)

    BTW, my painter says it's closest to Signal Red. I'm not sure that helps, since there are so many variations of that.
