    Question leather colours on 308's?

    Just about to give my leather the full gliptone liquid leather treatment but I'm not sure what colour it is. Seems to be lighter than tan, the previous owner thinks sable, anybody know the names of the various colours offered on the 308 back in 1984?

    From Keith Blumell's "Original Ferrari V-8" book

    Grigio: VM3393
    Nero: VM8500
    Beige: VM4208
    Crema: VM3997
    Rosso: VM3171
    Blu: VM3282

    Which suggests yours is beige but in the back of my mind is a niggling hint its something else again

    Ask them for some toners john when you order it , My leather is almost identical in colour and when i got some from liquid leather it was a bit too beige and needed toning down to match the colour

    No need to worry , its quite easy to use , you just have to make sure the leather is thoroughly cleaned before applying it , but you get evrything you need as part of the kit , give me a call on 07970 713062 when you get it and I'll go through it with you

    I did mine but sent them a piece of leather from around the radio to match the colour.
