Econofreight Blue......

Hi Guys,
Looking for the RAL code for the blue that was used on Econofreight trucks and trailers.
Any help gratefully received.
Nigel

I made numerous econofreight conversions and customs some using corgi econofreight bogies and parts-and a number of converted dafs and volvo models- but when it came to painting- my local halfords stocked ready to buy- FORD ELECTRIC MONZA BLUE spray paint ,it was ideal and I swear by it.

As far i know, the earlier blue is larkspur blue, this would cover XTM when it was new, and i've found RAL 5015 is a good match for the later blue
