Quote from: meantimebob on Apr 19, 2016, 01:12 amI'd just like to add that paint fades over time when exposed to the sunlight. My box is a lot paler now than when it first went up in the garden 15 years ago and is badly in need of another paint job. It looks as pale as the one in the Genevieve photo. Does anyone know how often the Met boxes were repainted, if at all?

Just means the colour timer did his or her job well (discounting the reds, of course, which were always overblown with Technicolor).
