Gogibhai - it is Azure Grey, I checked the formulation on the shade card, saw it in the sunlight, compared it with a Swift fortunately standing at my paintwallah's shop and then bought it. It should look good. Let's see.

Best regards,

Uh, careful GTA, you may risk losing your current ID also, this time due to this kind of language...hehe!

Anyways, pardon my ignorance but was it this very shade that was once also offered as 'steel grey' on fiats (circa 1971 to the best of my knowledge, as that was the colour what Prabal's family car was), or was that again a different shade?

Dear Shyam - you are correct but I am not able to recall the exact name of the colour. This swift grey is metallic. I actually wanted non-metallic grey but I could not get this exact shade. Let's see how it comes out.

How's AIA7802 doing ? Did you transfer it to your name ?

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Thanks for the clarification sir. I thought 'steel grey' was the exact name of that colour. Btw, 'didnt know the paint youve bought is a metallic one. 'should turn out interesting!

Reg. AIA7802, it still needs work to begin on it, however it is not my car! It has been bought by another tbhpian who, for reasons unbeknowst to me, has not yet disclosed the news himself! Maybe on reading your post where you took it that the car is mine, he would get some indignation to finally do so!

I think mettalic would look good on fiat, and dont know maybe single tone might be even better, compared to a two tone job

Cyrus Dikra - AIA7802 is the ELEGANT with the small lights, not the Millicento. It has the 3 slat grille, not the centre light grille.

Firstly, any model with the 1100cc engine is officially termed the Millecento. Millecento is Italian for Elevenhundered. So even the Select shape, Delight shape etc have been badged Millecento. In India the centre light grille Millicento was commonly reffered to as "Elegant", not the three slat grille.

Sorry but as karl pointed out the elegant is indeed the '57 "centelight" grille fiat. 7802 is indeed the "millecento", or for Karl's sake, the '54/55 fiat!
