      I've just started building the K76 Bugatti and would appreciate knowing what colours to use on the chassis and running gear. I'm about ready to assemble the block but before doing so need to know what colour to paint it and its accessories.

      If any of you have built or are building this kit, I'd like to hear from you.

      Thanks..........Rick

    The engine is polished aluminium. The lower part is rough aluminium. Sometimes the cam covers are hand scraped.

    The chassis rails are flat black, or semi-gloss black.

    However, Bugattis were built to order, so if a customer wanted somethnig else...

    I guess if it were a custom piece, any color should be theoretically correct. That leaves a lot of latitude. Hey the smilies are busted.

    Hermans right especially the larger Bugattis. From what Ive seen the the rails are usually the semi gloss. The block is a cast aluminum. Alclads light aluminum #106 is close. The cast cylinders usually are the same as semi gloss or flat black like the frame. The front, back, side covers and other parts like intake and such are polished aluminum (sometimes scraped). Aldlads Chrome #107 works well. The valve covers are scraped aluminum. This is your hardest part to get right and the reason I want to cast the covers in metal. For now Iam not sure how to get that look with paint. At least once the covers are avalable its an easy swap. The best site on the subject is Jaap Horsts site. http://www.bugattipage.com/ He's a great guy and always very helpfull with questions like this. Vive La Marque !!
    Dont forget to check out Hermans site. www.bugattibuilder.com
