1986 Rainbow Colors

In 1986, there appeared to be 3 different rainbow color options....

- RED set
- BLUE set
- GREY set

We currently have a RED on White 1986 that we bought used years and years ago and its getting time for some definite TLC. We will be having the upholstery redone, new carpet and redoing the graphics. Also planning on some other "repairs/replacements" to keep this ol' gal running for another 30+ years.

As blue seems to be one of our favorite "family" colors, we are discussing switching the color scheme to the BLUE set. We want to keep it in the traditional colors and patterns and are trying to determine what "shades" are used to get it as close as possible as to what was "original" for that scheme. This would include the three colors in the upholstery and stripes as well as the carpet.

Looking at pictures on here and elsewhere, we can see the colors often from a distance, which look awesome, but due to lighting, angles, distances, etc... the colors vary. We believe they are a navy, royal and light blue... but not 100% sure. Carpet, that's another questionable one too.

Anyone with a true BLUE Rainbow 86 help steer us to the correct colors?


Thanks

Pete

Sorry Pete, I can't help you with your question.

Just wanted to ask, are you by chance in SE Michigan on Round Lake?

KYFooter... thanks for the pics. Add them to the collection and see if we can determine an overall color that is close for the stripes.
