@Zagato_Olaf : To answer to your old question about the original paint sticker (sorry).
Under the green label, there is... nothing.
In this original sticker, there is the name of a company : Palini Vernici SRL.
I spoke with someone from this company and I will have exactly the same original color paint for my car.

This is part of conversation we had few weeks ago :

Me : Ciao io sono il proprietario di Alfa Romeo Zagato 1600 numero 394 del 1973. Questa vettura barnfind per 25 anni e ho ripristinarlo. Trovo un piatto con la vostra azienda in macchina. Puoi dirmi di pi, per favore? E 'significativo per ulteriori informazioni sulla mia macchina.

Palini : Gent.le Raphal, Grazie per il messaggio. Il nostro Colorimetry Department sta verificando le informazioni riguardanti la sua auto, Alfa Romeo Zagato 1600. Nel caso ci siano altre informazioni riportate sulla carrozzeria ci invii pure altre foto. Grazie e buona giornata.

Palini : La formula colore originale presente nei nostri DB Alfa Romeo 737 Grigio Met. utilizzata negli anni 72-77.

Me : Colore Dupont?

Palini : Colore Palinal - verniciatura originale

This is what I find strange... Why the sticker mentions Dupont (which is a paint brand) and Palini (a paint brand too) at the same time? It has no sense...
So maybe... Dupont refers to the name of the first owner? Dupont is a well known name in Belgium.
I ask by mail the DIV (vehicle registration service) to be able to know the name of the first owner of my car but the guy was not very kind with me.
When my car will be finish I will go at his office and make him an offer he can't refuse ahaha.

Niro, can you post some pictures as you restore the body? I'm interested to see your progress. I was lucky in that my Z body was in really good shape. I'm always envious of those who can do this level of repair.

Hello Niro,

I saw your post on the paint sticker today. Strange that nothing is underneath the green tape. I will make a picture of my paintsticker in the coming weeks to show you a sticker as a reference. My car was repainted in a slightly brighter yellow in the 70s and repainted the original Oro Giallo Zagato in 2003. The paintsticker was still present so we could aply the correct color without hesitation. No green tape on that sticker, just the registration of the color code AR 117 and the name of the paint.

Upper front panel.

Good morning Niro,
this sheet metal work is very good.
I'm in a process similar to yours.
My car is 1300Z and I need the upper front panel and front bumper.
can you tell me where you've done and what is the price.
best regards Alex
