Anyone got a paint code for the Road Runner horn "purple" ??
Testors #1234 https://www.amazon.com/Testors-1234T-Purple-Gloss-Enamel/dp/B0006N6RB2 https://www.modeltrainstuff.com/testors-1234-spray-enamel-paint-purple-3-oz/
Yeah, I've used Testors BUT it doesn't stand the test of time - mine has faded so bad its almost white !!!
Hmm, maybe a clear coat would help?

Just restored my horn using most of the info above, https://www.forbbodiesonly.com/mopa...restoration-with-photos.54143/#post-909901557. I found some testors 1234 paint and tested it on the horn before stripping it and it's not close so I ordered the horn paint from OER and it is right on. Cost about $35. shipped. The rivets I got from ACE hardware at .08 each and I bought the tool listed above from Hansons.
I forgot to mention that the OER paint was very slow to dry at least a couple of days and I had to hang it in the house to help.
I used delstar ppg from year one too and just went to look at the can to see if there was a formula written on it but nope. The colour was bang on.
The YearOne stuff is: a) pricey b) won't ship to Canada c) ship date is like 5 weeks !! Who is "OER" ??
Found this BUT would still like to find the paint code http://www.mrmoparts.net/products/paint-purple-for-horn-68-72-plymouth-roadrunner.html
Original equipment restoration. Most things from. Lasdic industries are OER. Yah year one is all of those things, but being that it’s ppg there must be a code- keep looking!
I think they call it b-beeple.................
