Mach 1 paint

Post by Bob Lancastle »

I've just taken a genuine Mach 1 tank to a paint supplier local to me to get some paint for a complete 2K paint job. The tank has been inside out of sunlight for the last 30 years ish, so the red colour cut back to its original hue, however the silver had gone yellow.

Give me a few days and I will post the codes here. The paint supplier is making me some test aerosols so I can be sure that the match is as close as possible.

I'm no expert at painting, so use what codes come your way at your own risk!

I've just tried out the second attempt for the silver and its looks perfect, to my eye anyway.

I've not tried the red yet and I will be away on business before I get around to that colour, however:

You can get the codes from:-

J.P Supplies
Unit 11
Springfield Business Centre
Stonehouse
Gloucestershire
GL10 3SX

01453 791158

Ask to speak to Shelley. This lady has been involved with Auto paint for twelve years and is very helpful.

Hope this helps

Hi again,

Just returned from my travels.

Silver-Mercedes- DB744.70F
Red- BS539

This red is slightly more different to the original red, however, it does in my opinion enhance the bike. If anybody needs the original red code please contact me.

Hope this helps

Bob
