I dug up an old thread where Glenn said he gave up trying to find a match for the paint about 5 years back..but has anyone found a "close enough" match? It doesn't have to be dead nuts accurate, I just want to freshen mine up as most of the original paint has since flaked off.

As far as I know - No but I found this older post with one that looks nice but not 100% correct as it's plain paint and not a "hammer tone":

Thanks! I hadn't found that thread in my search. I did some more digging last night, I know this isn't really correct either (it's just as correct as the blue on the dist you posted!) but at least it's hammertone. I might give it a shot.

And if all else fails, what black paint is everyone painting their distributors in? Laughing

BTW, they were black 019s that were complete and then painted over including the hardware.

Thanks, Glenn! I'd known there were just painted over, in fact mine is about half black again. Laughing

Like I said, if all else fails I'll just paint it back to black. I just wanted to clean it up a little and thought it would be cool blue again. What are you using to paint them black?

I use a satin black finish.

The original black paint was notoriously thin.

To be perfectly honest, I don't all that much care for the original screamer blue paint, overspray and sloppy. The black looks good, but the "over restored" one in that thread linked looks great.

On most of the 019 distributors I've tore down, they were mostly the same tone, but one had a bit of a teal tint, more than the usual blue. I personally like the black, and use rustoleum 500 degree engine paint, since it holds up very well. If you use it, do the semi-gloss and throw it in the oven (or hotbox if you have one) for an hour or so at 250 degrees to knock down the shine and cure the paint, it will be stronger faster that way.

It looks less gloss in person, but works great if you go this route...

No, it doesn't.
