climax paint ...

Post by matt86 on Tue Oct 11 2011, 17:26

does anyone know the correct shade or the name of the green that would be the best match for a climax pump .. The pump has the original paint on it but is really quite dark .

cheers matt

there seems to be more and more pink engines popping up at the rallies...
the ones ive seen have been either Lister's or wolseleys..
theres a pink wolseley that gets up at ardingly show ground in east Sussex

i know when i gave the wolseley to Chris back some time ago (yes i gave it to him for free before you buggers start calling me a liar or something) his daughter was well happy..long may she enjoy it as well....well done Chris...

It's the pills that's making me forget, well I think it is I can't remeber now if it's them or something else. If it's something else then it's not the pills so it could be old age but with getting old I can't remember when it started to happen, if I do remember I'll let you know but with getting older it doesn't help my memory. Well that's cleared that up, I think.
