Paint your Wagon


Something painted RAL 3005; looks about right

First painted piece (top)

One of the things Pete Baker told me was that the "proper" colour for the lathe was categorized as RAL 3005 in paint terms. A bit of googling finds that Johnstones do this as a special mix, incorporating primer and topcoat in one go, tidy.

The website I found (The Paint Shed) appears to deal in hard-to-find paints of this nature. I'll get a small can in and test the results.

Update, 15th October:

The can of paint arrived, and wasn't it just gorgeous?

I painted a piece that I haven't an immediate use for, and here it is, along with one of the few pieces that remain in their original colours
