Paint for Webb 1473

Can anyone give me any info on the green paint used on Webb Lawnmowers and any possible suppliers.

I have recently purchased a 1976, 1473 which needs sprucing up but can't find a supplier on the net.

Take an unfaded sample (under handle grip ot inside belt guard) to an automotive paint supplier and get them to scan it. Some will even put it in a "trade size" aerosol can.

or, take your sample to Halfords and wander up and down their rack to select the nearest match!

Thanks Wristpin,

Had just come to the same conclusion to try Halfords for the nearest match

Thanks for the help, called in at a local machinery paint supplier and got what looks like a perfect colour match. Got to get the spray kit out now.

Is it an off the shelf make and shade or was it mixed to match. If the former please share!
