Vesicant Paint

Post by Greendot319 » Sun Aug 16, 2020 1:27 pm

Apparently once plentiful I can't seem to find an original tin available, anyone have a pot that can be put to good use? :D
Cheers

Yer, Difficult to work out exactly what the colour is, it seems to start off a darker mustardy yellow and then fades out as it degrades. If anyone has any i'd love to get hold of a tin!

The Ral 1027 Curry was an excellent shade match btw:

Thank, very kind of you to say! Hopefully one day I can apply some real vesicant paint to my jeep hood, that would be a really great day for me!
