Anyone ever paint a PEB to match the original colors? Know of a paint code? I was thinking of stripping and painting at the least the top, which on mine is pretty scratched and shabby.

I've seen a few that were redone in black (or in black and silver), as well as a few that were painted to match the beige consoles. I've never seen anyone try to match the original color as part of a repainting though. . .

mantadoc has done an professional job painting it beige. Even the Speech etc. got the job. And since I used to have one, I guess the monitor was originally silver-gray (and so was the buttons). New stickers. And is it a CF7+ inside the Speech ? Very cool.

If you go into a local NAPA or similar store, they can match paint pretty good. You should be able to get very close to the original gold and brown, but the sky's the limit.

Hi everyone,

 

Resurrecting this older thread.

 

I have a PEB that has some stubborn stains that I can't seem to remove. I'm wondering if anyone has successfully painted a PEB since the time of the last post.

 

There are some decent spray paints available and was hoping someone identified a good match for the factory colors.

 

Thanks!

Any good auto body repair shop has the equipment to color match damn near anything. Take in the lid and see if they would be willing to mix you up a batch of paint, or even professionally paint it for you during a slow moment. Most of the work is in the preparation, as in sanding, filling and cleaning. You don't want to paint over scratches and dents.
