Quote from: davidnagel on Jul 07, 2015, 09:48 amI'll keep my eye out for some, as soon as I work out the rough thickness. I'm guessing it's about 6mm but I'll do some photo comparisons first.

Quote from: davidnagel on Jul 15, 2015, 04:22 pmI've gone for automotive silver spray paint. To me, the tool kit looks like a silvery/white. It may be wrong but I'm going for an idealised version of the kit.
Quote from: davidnagel on Jul 15, 2015, 04:22 pmUnfortunately between acquiring the case and painting now, it seems some weird rusting is appearing in places...I've tried sanding this back between primer coats but it isn't going away. Being the impatient sort, I have decided against fixing this completely and hoping the detailing tape will make the lid patch less obvious. The side will be covered by the external boxes.
