After a 6 month hibernation, the Mini is finally almost ready for a respray. I've got a colour scheme in my head, but I could do with a hand identifying the rough shade of blue that I'm after! Something along these lines:

 

I'm pretty sure this picture from Santa Pod is someone on here...

Depending on the light and if it's a metallic it could be Caribbean blue.

 

Unlikely on a MkI though.

I don't think it's teal blue , I had a midget in teal and I'm sure it was a bit lighter!

Top one I know for sure is Island Blue. Also, the owner is quite sensitive about having pictures of his car posted on here, so I would remove it if I was you.

He was a member on here, I can't remember his name, but he wanted all of the pictures of his car taken off of here. Cant argue with that really, if it's his car.

I kind of understand, but not sure he has any right to do that as they are not his photo's. Would understand if his address was all over the car though.

 

Back on subject.....cracking looking car and lovely colour.

The picture just came up on Eurostance's website via Google Images.... I'm happy to remove it if he gets in contact though!

 

Back to the topic, thanks for the help so far, but can anyone suggest a blue that is more like the way it is displayed on the top photo? Looking at Sonikk4's picture in the bright daylight, it's a bit lighter than I was imagining.

The top one is definitely Island Blue, I promise. Do a search on Google images for more pictures of it.

Sorry, I didn't explain that too clearly; Sonikk's picture of Teal Blue and a Google search of Island Blue are both still a little bit too light for what I was ideally after. The top picture from Santa Pod has clearly been edited and tinted, so it looks quite a deep blue on the screen (does that make sense?! My brain has turned into some kind of mush).

 

I was hoping there was a colour somewhere between Island Blue and Tahiti Blue?
