Now that my enine bay is very smart and clean my front strut brace is very much letting the side down .

So much infact that I haven't fitted it .

So today I split it down cleaned up the threads and sanded all the paint off .
I've put a base coat down of anti rust paint .

My issue is I want to repaint it cusco blue .

Does anyone know what blue it is or a colour that is similar

Cusco is a two staged paint silver then blue over the top ... from what I've read vauxhaull ardent blur is a close match ....

So this is where I'm at . I sanded them down pretty much to bare metal . Gave them a coat of anti rust primer then 2 coats of Arden blue .

Just needs some laquer next
