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:
There's a nice slideshow tool that will cycle through the shots.
I also have a Facebook page on Gattino Rosso, at:

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. ;-)
