What your series 2a engine paint colour
« on: June 10, 2016, 07:34:28 PM »
Hello at the moment Major Clews has it head been re-Conditioned. So my question is what has everone painted there engines, as mine red and Camo green at moment from the army and I don't want re-paint it red. Was thinking painting the engine all Camo green as duck egg blue is hard to get here in Rockhampton.

Check every paint shop no go. They look at me and than give me the blank stare.

There is a ford engine paint that is pretty close to duck egg blue. My shorty has used it. I forget who makes it, but I'll dig around this arvo to see if I still have the can.

Cheers,

Pete

Here's some pics. The sticker on the can lid is rubbed a bit, but I believe it says 'ford green'

It is very close to duck egg blue.

You should be able to order it on line via auto shops etc.

Cheers,

Pete
