    HELP- 70's -Sears Ted Williams Reynolds 531 Puch Paint Color

    I found one and need to know where I can find a paint match on the frame Its the one with the lemon lime color. Citrine, is what it might be called. A pantone 605 is close...as is the Hex code E4D00A. Problem is no one seems able to make this color into a spray can. Need to repaint the entire frame Found one company in the UK that might be able to do it....but won't ship spray cans. Testors 1184 is also close. Has anyone out there restored the TED WILLIAMS Reynolds 531...if so what paint match did you use.

    Thanks

    That's a tough color. I had one once but didn't attempt a touchup. Are you sure it needs a re-paint? If you are dead set on painting and it has to be the original color, the best bet would be take the frame to a good body shop and have them match it. Then have them spray it, or sell you the paint. I gather you don't own a spray *** but if you're patient you could do it with a Preval sprayer.

    [edit] ok, three letters, rhymns with 'run'; you hold it in your hand and pull that thing that rhymns with 'chigger' and paint comes out.

    Thanks for the post and the pictures....and some good tips. Just posting to see if there is anyone out there that has done a complete repaint and how it worked out

    Not to mention it may have faded some over the years and wouldn't even match the original paint applied new.
