Hi Anthony,

I have some bot


Hi Anthony,

I have some bottles of the "special yellow paint" in stock. It's $29.95 a bottle. Don't worry about the label that says "Testors" on it, we just put the special paint in those bottles. How many do you need?

Regards, JRV

I knew is was nothing special!

I knew is was nothing special! : ) I was just wondering what kind (latex, etc) of paint it was. A past mechanic painted my oil drain plug with this yellow - it scrapes right off the metal, as it should, so one could reapply it. I was just wondering what kind of paint would not permanently bond to metal and could be scraped off easily.

Thanks,

Anthony

I do, I know! What was I thinking last night! I am not even going to use the paint!

Oh, yes, and the special brushes you need to apply the paint with have special horse hair bristles selected from only the finest stallions in Italia.....

There is a funny story about the yellow paint over at www.tomyang.net and how his mechanic had a customers car at a concours and was about to be deducted points for using the wrong shade of yellow paint, he screamed at them about what the hell did they know, since he used to work at Ferrari building cars, and they used what ever yellow paint was on the shelf...when they ran out, they went to the paint area and asked for more...there was no specific yellow paint color..they relented, and no loss of points...amusing.

We use a laquer based type that comes in a small squeeze tube capped with a small nozzle. Used for applying torque stripes to hydraulic fittings after inspection. I can beat JRV's price by 10.00 if you need any.
