    Hi, can anyone recommend a good colour match to spray the hand and frame of a guardsman? Ideally 'off the shelf' would be better for me. I'd like to get the same kind of shade of gold as the original. Many thanks

    I think it's one of the Plastikote range - 'Brass' No. 39 if I recall correctly. B&Q sell/sold it but you'll be able to get it elsewhere, cheaper, probably...

    Yes Plastikote Brass. It looks way to bright but is actually correct. Nearly all the old lamps we see are dull gold but that is the years of exposure and fading. They were bright gold when new. ::Neil::
