GIOS Blue?

Does anyone know of an equivalent colour to Gios blue? I've tried Humbrol model paints for touch ups but can't find anything that matches.
I suspect the closest would be a car colour but I don't fancy buying half a dozen just to find one! :?

    Take your bike to Halfords, they'll match it.

    Gios blue? - the two I have owned were different shades so colour matching might be worth considering, particularly if the paint is old / faded a bit. RAL5017 is supposedly a good match.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
  • Ha ha spoke to RaceScene & they're still trying to find the perfect match! I'll try taking the frame to Halfords & see if there's a close car colour

    thanks for all the advice.
