I was working on my grill on the weekend. When I was rubbing back the plastic end pieces I found that mine had actually been painted black over the top of the original paint.

Metallic paints used in the 60's were often an acrylic enamel. These are sometimes called mono metallic since there was no clear coat over the metallic. All these old parts are done that way, a bit of thinners and the paint simply rubs off as I found out, it's rubbish.

Anyhow, I had Hiro colour match the grill for me by eye before we primed the lot so I now have a sample. Funny thing, Hiro used to work on these things back in Japan in his younger years!

I'll be happy to provide some samples when we spray the grill soon. It wont be an acrylic though, probably a 2 pack matt or satin finish, it will be good enough.
