I thought I would post up these pic's of a frame I have just had Powdercoated in colour RAL 6027..

Trying to find a Celeste match for this frame was near on impossible without heading to a local spraying firm and going through the hassle of colour matching, but this colour is very very close...
I have also taken the mech thread protector that was obviously coloured at the same time as the frame and held it against the current Bianch Via Condotti and it's a 99% match 8).....

for a 60 quid investment that inc blasting and coating and the fact my local PC firm powdercoating essex had it instock was a bonus...

So there you go if you want your old Bianchi frame brought back to life this could be the cost affective way of doing it!!!! just ask for RAL 6027...

Note the Bianchi Bottle is a fair bit different even to the current celeste so dont use that as a comparison...

I wouldn't worry to much about exact matches. I've seen enough variations on 'Celeste' to fill a shade card!

Yours looks fine to me.
