Hi, Im restoring a gitane and I'm trying to find the colour code for the blue used in 1983/4/5 on the renault team bikes. Any help would be much appreciated

Hi thanks for replying, it was me that posted the question there. I took the frame to ARGOS cycles in Bristol to day they were very helpful, and I've gone for the same blue as used on the Motorolla Merckx frames
Looks about rite
