Re: Does anyone have a source for the putty colored paint used on HP peripherals?

Thanks everyone for all the good input!
Stephen, if you do find those cans, I would be interested. I can probably open them up and pour the paint into a hobby-style paint sprayer and go from there.
I will also check out the local hobby shop, as they have a very large selection of colors for model making, and I might find one that is “close enough.”
Worst comes to worst, I’ll take a part in fair shape to a paint shop that can match it.

I just did a whole bunch of very tatty/rusted HP drive cases from that era and a (very) repaired 85A case. I got my local paint shop that do all my 'production' stuff to do it. They used RAL 7032 in a light textured finish, putting systems side by side with original finish ones it looks very close indeed but probably you would need to do the whole thing not just a patch.
