    Default Gris Rose

    Believe it or not I found an almost perfect match for Gris Rose at Bunnings Port Melbourne today for $2.50 a can. My lucky day! Simple pleasure. And a very spiffing new wheel for the 69.

    Michael, This will go ride over some peoples heads. For the uninitiated maybe you can elaborate what Gris Rose is and explain to people where it should be seen.

    Hey, take it easy. You're going to start a stampede of wagon owners!

    I can double check this evening when I get home. I think it was "Bushland" which is a match to a Colorbond colour. I'm very happy with it as a match, having double checked it this morning now it has dried.

    Hmmm, maybe I could re-do mine in Colorbond.

    POR is great stuff except it sticks like *^%# and is a B8tch to get off, I had some put on the luggage compartment and it has corroded underneath, so it has to come off, fear is what's going to be left once I grind, sand it away... The boot is (as a given) trap for moisture in the lid sponge/lip of boot and then causes corrosion south of it. I won't use POR there when I repair it as it failed and is harder to repair as a result, I guess if the area isn't completely sealed or prepped correctly in the first place you are up for more trouble. Putting on a steering wheel is overkill as it isn't exposed to moisture, you would hope!
    When i repaint the engine bay I am going to use zinc primer and satin black cans, maybe some clear coat over the top. POR is too extreme I think, POR better suited to heavy duty industrial gear. My steering wheel on a 74 DSpecial is black too so somewhere they just painted it with whatever was around I guess, the sleeve is gris rose however. Might go looking for that colour up here, cheers
