Tony, try your local specialist auto paint supplier. That's where mine comes from.
Ask your garage who his supplier is if you can't locate one.

I don't know where you are in the country, but agricultural suppliers such as Burgess often have machinery paint on the shelves in litre tins. My primer, thinners and Mid-Brunswick Green comes from Burgesses in Sundorne, Shrewsbury.

There's

- don't miss it!) "Mid Brunswick green (shade 226) on the BS381C colour chart. Any decent automnotive (sic) paint dealer should have that chart and be able to mix it in a brushing synthetic enamel."
You could just leave it with that "ridden hard and put away wet" look :-)

They produce QD90 Machinery & Metal Paint which is heat resistant, and fuel resistant. It is a high gloss finish but only available in a limited range of colours...but ! QD Landrover Green is ideal for Listers & Petters and QD Green is what I use for Fowlers and I have always been pleased with the results.
Not too expensive and can be brushed or sprayed (I prefer brushing though) I would apply at least two coats, (but more often three), rubbed down in between. I use two coats of Finnigans No1 Beige as the base primer/undercoat and have had no problems.
There are contact details on the website to obtain your local supplier.
Hope this helps David

Yep, I can vouch for Blackfriars QD-90, great paint, and in reasonable quantities for the price.

Our local agricultural suppliers had a "vintage" range in it's paint stocks and they were very good especially with a good old brush, but at this moment I just forget the brand name!!!!

Hi,
Genuine Mid, Dark or light Brunswick green can be bought from Dacrylate paints, at Ki= rkby in Ashfield Notts. Tey are BS colours and readily available
Try their Website.
I have used their paints for some years and they are very good.
Primer for steel & iron is good, the machinery enamel is excelent for brush or spray. I= ts also cheap at about =C2=A36 for 2.5 Litres. They are long life alkyd resin paints.

Hi Tony, Most suitable trade paint suppliers will mix Mid Brunswick but always ask for a industrial metal cladding type paint as it has a slightly higher heat rating. Johntone paints seem to be the best in my opinion. Good luck Clayton Jones
