    I've been in contact with the original owner Tony. He was very surprised and pleased I managed to trace him but can't recall the interior. He has enjoyed the photo updates of the restoration process I've been sending to him and regrets not keeping any photo's of the car when he owned it. I've got copies of the original order and someone had cut out the photo of the red cloth inserts from the sales brochure and attached them to the paperwork sent to the factory to ensure it was built with these seats. It is a bit mad but does work when you see it in person

    Green and red are complimentary colours on a typical colour wheel - gives a strong contrasting scheme (colour wheels have been in use for nearly 250yrs and the various theories that sit behind them are pretty handy

    In the metal this one probably looks quite different - on the photos here it pushes the edges of the colour wheel ideas a little

    Actually Andy

    Magenta is the complementary colour to green. Red green and blue are the primary colours that comprise white light, and cyan magenta and yellow are the respective complementary colours. If you take white light and remove (by filtering) one of either the primary colours or complementary colours you end up with the matching complementary.

    ie. Start with white light, apply a cyan filter, and you end with red.

    Matching paints or pigments is a completely different matter.

    It would be interesting to know what the complementary colour of that particular green is and how close that particular red is to being its complementary colour.

    I've restored three 246 GT's now Jason. My 246 GTS has had it's engine removed and stripped down and the body is at the paint shop. I've got a 1972 911E in restoration that is about to start the build back up phase next week. I think that will be the end of my restoration adventures but I recall saying something similar after completing my second Dino

    Here are a few photo's of it. It's gone back into it's original colour of Signal Yellow and the interior will be re-trimmmed as it left the factory in black vinyl with black corduroy seat centres.
