    Jul 16, 2012, 1:05 AM - ESB back panel spray paint color? #1

    I have been working on the back panels and I am close to painting the main color. I have read about spraying 2 colors (navy blue w spruce green) but I am afraid of not making it consistant. Has anyone come across a single spray can color that works? If so what is the color and where did you find it?
    thanks!

    Back in my days before an airbrush, I foUnd a brand called Ironlak which had a colour named 'neverland' that was quite good. Also a brand called MTN94 had a good match called 'glory blue'. My range being in Australia could be very differrent to whats available in your area tho bud :-)

    I finished my lid a couple months back and could find a single color I was happy with. I looked for the color Fett 4 Real mentioned but never found it and am always on the look out for a better color. Lowes, Home Depot, Hobby Lobby and Michael's don't carry a spray paint that's real close in my opinion. I ended up using Blue Angel Blue (testors) and misted with Spruce Green. Good luck!

    You may want to try Krylon Hunter Green (Satin) and then over mist it randomly with Rustoleum Dark Gray automotive primer. After it dries, hit with some Testors Dullcote to knock the shine off.
