I get that, but what paint manufacturer is that color 304 from? It's great that you found a match for your bike, but without knowing what paint you used, the information isn't much help for the rest of us.

Perhaps this will help others, as the AkzoNobel 455A2 does indeed look like an excellent match for 1980s vintage Celeste. This conversion data comes from QConv.com

Akzo Nobel Colormap FD 455A2
CMYK 32 / 0 / 12 / 24
HEX #84C1A9
RGB 132 193 169 1
HSL 156.39, 0.33%, 0.64%
LAB 73.49, -24.81, 5.85

I am going to try this in the spring, when it's warm enough to paint again.

Imperfect bitzer build. As it always was 30-odd years ago.
