    I bought 2 cans of Dull Aluminum to start and realized it wasn’t going to be enough . So ordered 2 more cans ..
    Seems that one of the first 2 cans was off a shade . You can see it on the tip . I did notice that there was a label under the outer label but I could make out what it read and it read Dull Aluminum so didn’t think much of it at the time .. Anyone else have any trouble with there QC .. I had all the pieces in different areas so I never really noticed the difference until now .

    Just noticed there is a Sea Horse emblem on the sticker under the outer sticker .
    I guess somehow at there factory they screwed up . I guess The Johnson dull aluminum is different than the Evinrude .. 🤬

    Ordered 1958 Holiday Bronze from my QD 19 from them once.
    Label read 1958, but paint was actually the darker 1957 shade of Holiday Bronze.

    Never had any trouble with paint color or shade that I ordered from North York Marine, even when I had to order additional cans after running a little short on the initial order.

    Samuel, what does Reprotint say?

    You're only as smart as the person you're talking to.

    Samuel, what does Reprotint say?

    I haven’t contacted them yet . I’ve been camping the last few days .
    Gunna call them Monday and see if they would send me a couple cans so I can make it match .IMHO should be at no charge ..
    I did get it off there Ebay store if that makes a difference .
    It was just easier using PayPal ..

    Ok I’m assuming the the correct color is the lighter color dull aluminum.. Debating which color would be easier to change . Everything has clear on it .
    The tank ,front cover, plug covers , and mounting bracket are all the darker color . Everything else is I assume the correct lighter color . What are my chances of taping off the decals without tearing them up .
    There is 4 light coats of clear on the decals before I installed them ..

    It looks pretty nice. I think I’d be tempted to leave well enough alone.

    Prepare to be boarded!

    If it were me, I would leave the tank alone and use whatever color you used on the tank as your standard. JMHO

    Repotint sent me a can of paint pretty quickly . Repainted the all the darker color . The mounting brackets still seem a little darker color but I think it looks ok …
