Side-Piper tank
« on: December 16, 2014, 06:53:38 PM »

   Ready to paint my side-piper tank, anyone got a colour code for the orange/red colour or a colour chip they could share.  If I can get a chip I will return it as soon as I get it matched,  I will also paint a few extra chips for future use.

If you still need the info I'll ask my friend who owns 1 if he knows the code

   Yes Tony I still need the code so if your mate has it, or even a colour chip that I can match that would be a big help.
  Thanks for your trouble.   Zane

Hi Zane, Steve couldn't help with the code but I checked on the oldscool cz forum & the code 410.F3 in Lesonal brand paint but I wouldn't be surprised if the code isn't common to other brands

Any success Zane?
 Looks like I may be racing the 360 I mentioned this year in our pre70 class which runs with the womens & over 60s class, in theory a 60yo women riding a pre70 bike would be scoring points in 3 classes at the same time, some of the guys are scoring in 2 classes

   Hi Tony
            Yes I contacted the Lesonal paints rep and he put me in touch with a rep from Bradstreets paints and he traced the colour code you supplied to me, it turned out to be a red/orange Fiat colour made by a company called Scalia.
   The rep ( Ross ) was working away last week but will send me a paint swatch of the colour as soon as he gets back to his office.  Hopefully it will be right and that will make it a lot easier for anyone interested to find.  I was waiting for the swatch to arrive before posting, but when it gets here I will let you know how it looks, fingers crossed.

   Paint swatch still hasn't arrived yet.  I hate it when your told that it will be in the post today when you know that they probably have no intention of doing that.  When I worked as a Purchasing Officer I dealt with good and bad reps and after being stung a few times.  I used to tell them, if you can't guarantee a product will arrive on time then don't tell me it will, all that does is piss me off and if it continued to happen I would just sack that supplier and buy elsewhere.  I know this is a different situation but I was told that it was being posted more than 3 weeks ago and then again over a week ago.  I have sent him another reminder today so I suppose I will just have to wait and see.  But it still pisses me off.
