I am going to use what Continental Electronics uses on their B'cast transmitters - Sherwin Williams Polane (a Polyurethane paint) on the Bauer 707 I'm rebuilding. S-W can can mix any color take a sample piece down to them.  Another choice is an auto bode paint supply like English Color Supply. I'm not sure if they're national or nor, but we have a whole slew of them in the DFW area.

Hi folks,

The restoration of the BC-1H1 is coming to a close. I have most of the
electronic repair and rewire finished, and
I'm soon ready to start packing everything back into the case.

Today, being a warm day for Feb. on the East Coast. I took the case, sides,
and doors outside, and gave them a serious scrub and wash.
I got of the decades of brown sauce that had adhered to every exterior spot,
and all the black soot and dirt, removed inside and out.

On inspection there are just a lot of scratches, rust spots, and generally
bad places. I think the unit would benefit from a coat of factory paint.

Now the big question: Where can one get that interesting "Sea Foam"
greenish/grey Gates-Harris BC-1H color?

Any hints, clues, or directions???
