So within hours of completing my 315, I now have this 300X on it’s way to me. Looks like a nice easy restoration. I like the maroon font colour so will match that as closely as possible and I’m looking forward to getting the hood brass gleaming again which will work nicely with the maroon. However I’m a bit torn on the top section of the hood as even to my moderately colourblind eyes the postbox red seems to be a bit of a clash with the maroon of the font (Noticed the new one on my 315 darkened a bit with use, but still wouldn’t be maroon). I have spotted the replacement brass tops and could be tempted (thinking I may not end up a total purist) but worried that it would look great in brass initially but then get tarnished through use and not look good long term without a lot of work. Seen a few examples in the galleries, just wondered if anyone had any advice or had come up with a solution?
