    I am trying to find a good paint match for an American Coleman 200A, dated 1-64. I ordered a Hycote Nissan Magnetic Red which looked perfect on the website but when it arrived the colour swatch is closer to burgundy and if I try it, I can’t send it back! Has anyone found a good Coleman red available in the UK? I appreciate there are a few shades of Coleman red over the years and I’m not overly precious about it but would be nice to get as good a match to original as possible.

    Thank you 268B4BFE-356A-491A-BDD4-EC8BCC241728.jpeg 9D52853D-5974-4942-8F46-1658620B2801.jpeg

    If you have access to Rustoleum products Sunrise Red is a good match for the stove fuel tanks and some versions of 200A.

    How about post office red, you can check the colour match at your nearest post box and as I learnt from a phone box project I done years ago this colour is available in some good quality industrial paints.

    That could be a good match, I’ll add it to the shortlist! Thanks.
