Ok Guys I have stripped the old finish of this 8S463 and I plan to use the Krylon Camo Brown on the dark trim. Should I prime these areas before using the spray paint? <BR>Thanks JP<P>------------------<BR>

Hello<BR>I don't know the radio, I'll guess it's wood. This may mean you intend to spray cellulose over the body and over the painted trim. I have found problems with doing this over some paints and I think Krylon was one of them. Basically the cellulose attacked the paint. I know that I can use auto acrylic under it with no problems providing I let it stand around for a week or so first. So I stick with this or use cellulose toner. I can't be sure if Krylon was one of my No! No's, I should keep notes but beware. Spray an old bit of wood first and see what happens. As to using primer first it does have more body and will fill fine scratches and grain. I reckon at this stage not to have any and filled the grain so wouldn't bother. I get concerned about paint build up. I often put the paint on, to get depth of colour and then toner and then lacquer the whole thing. I like the toner over the paint, it gives a different look. Sort of a deep shine.<BR>Hope this helps... but do test before the actual cabinet. Gary<P>------------------<BR>

Hi-<BR> I can only say I have sprayed clear nitro-cellulose lacquers over the Krylon camouflage brown with not one problem. More than once. YMMV<P> This particular spray paint (camo) is heavier-bodied than some of the other colors in the line. A little does a lot, regarding coverage.<P> Den<P>------------------<BR>

Guys,<BR>I finally found a can of Krylon Camouflage Brown #8142. But it is nearly Black! Krylon has another shade called Camouflage Medium Brown #8147. This shade is more of what I think of as Brown. Did I buy the wrong stuff?<BR>I need it for the wood trim on a 1939 Zenith console model 8S463.<BR>Thanks, JP <P>------------------<BR>

<BR> 8142 is what I used.<BR> A perfect match to my needs.<BR> I don't know of the #8147, but now I'll look for it to add to inventory here.<BR> <BR> You can save yours for when you restore the speaker basket on a Philco 70. - <IMG SRC="http://antiqueradios.com/forums/smile.gif"><P> If you need a lighter, ruddier brown, Krylon "Leather Brown" might do.<P> Good Luck,<BR> Den<BR> <P>------------------<BR>

Hi,<BR> I like the leather brown,for not so black trim. Also wondered if you guys have used the handle with trigger that snaps on the spray can and allows you to spray like using a gun?<BR>Ken<P>------------------<BR>

I'll have to look for the two Krylon colors. I've been using the Rustoleum Camo paint and love it. I didn't even know Krylon made a camo paint! I'm having trouble finding Krylon around here anymore. Two places I used to get it have both switched to Rustoleum paints.<P>Peter<P>------------------<BR> <A HREF="http://www.plasticradios.com" TARGET=_blank>http://www.plasticradios.com</A>

<P>IT IS ?? EUREKA- finally an almost black brown paint !!!! I've been mixing my own for years now, and mucking about spraying dark brown toner over black trying to make almost black brown. <P>SO, in other words- YES, it's the right color. In fact it's THE color for old radio trim. Dennis forgot to tell me about that one <IMG SRC="http://antiqueradios.com/forums/smile.gif"><P>John H.<P><P>------------------<BR>

<P><BR>Far from being _that_ black John. I've seen it at Dennis', so will you soon. I get similar results using burnt umber Artists acrylic paint on my radios calling for this color. I think Dennis's way is much faster than using a small brush and acrylic paint, but the results are pretty much the same.<P>I restored a Crosley 56TN using this trick and it is an exact match in color. So I figure I'll buy a can of that Krylon for my next project to save time (!), a GE A-81 or something like that...<P>Syl<BR><P>------------------<BR>
