Early Cam Cover Paint

PostPost by: kpcseven » Sun Sep 17, 2023 11:39 pm

Does anyone have a source for the hammered blue paint for S1 and S2 cam covers? I’ve searched the archives and found Rust Oleum hammered light blue but it is no longer made.

I too was not able to find the Rustoleum paint. In the US, I recommend using https://mountuneusa.com/ They will vapor wash and powder coat your cover.

I used a dark hammerite global something or other and my paint guy lightened it. Came out quite close to the scrap of original I had. He added quite a bit of silver.
