Powder Blue (ICI # 8103) is just what the name says, a light pastel
Wedgwood Blue (ICI # 5814) is similar in color but with significantly
gray and somewhat darker.
Winchester Blue (ICI # 2922) could be described as a "pastel-like" navy
blue, much darker than either of the above.
Royal Blue (aka Midnight Blue ICI # 4665) is a deep, clean navy blue,
For the past several months, I have been developing a color guide to
postwar British cars, including Triumph, MG, Austin-Healey, and Jaguar.
To that end, I have sprayed roughly 150 colors with ICI "2K" single
layer urethane automotive paint onto 3" x 5" metal sample panels and
have a nearly complete set for Tr2-6. These panels will serve as color
standards with which we can produce a color guide. My company
manufactures color cards and I intend to use our manufacturing
capabilities to produce my color guide.
BTW, nearly ALL colors that were used on these vehicles are readily
available in a state-of-the-art coating from ICI Autocolor. Anyone
interested can call ICI customer service at 1-800-647-6050 for the
location of a local supplier or contact me directly for more info.
