I've looked on t'internet with regards to cylinder paint colour (for red cylinders) and the consensus seems to be signal red or post office red.
so I bought some post office red and sprayed up the cylinder from a mk5 Ajax. It's a very 'modern' looking colour, bright red, almost a bit orangey. Like you would see on a new mower.
can anyone recommend a red more suited to a vintage mower? I've got an ajax mk2 to do and want something a bit more subtle.
does anyone know what the original colour was?
