Afternoon Sir. Ref: Above on lafette restore.Spot on! Sorry about the pun! Question. My Lafette could use a bit of touch up in spots. There is a Sherwin-Williams dealer about 7 miles from us. Do you have the S/W paint code for the Dark green colour? I restore older British cars as a hobby. Spent 4 years doing a '75 Bentley T-1 series saloon. Learned a lot of 4 letter words. After that,went back to early Mini's. Thanks for any addil'information. Mossie.. My favorite airplane.
Thank you for all the information. The paint match thing is normally a nightmare in this hobby. I had both colors mixed. It's nice being able to get authentic colors at my local paint store. The grey as mixed is a dead match to the original ammo can I bought from you.Not that I am going to paint that one buT I have a bunch of yugo green cans that will get the treatment.
yep, I have a picture somewhere that I spayed out a test panel and then compared it to the inside cover of one of those original cans I sold. Dead on match. The satin sheen will settle down a bit after baking the paint and about a year of curing, it will tone down and not look so shiny. I've heard about adding talc powder to the paint to flatten the sheen down, but haven't played around with that and probably never will.
Well I wish that I could replace all of the missing photos. But I can't at this time. What I can do is state that I live in Fla. and my wife and I drove to Red Wing, Minn for one of DA's machine gun shoots where I got to see TC's great MG34 and this Lafette and only took a few pics, still wish I had taken a few hundred more. But a few pics of the finished Project.
