Mariner 30 Paint Colour?

Would anyone care to guess in what Mariner paint colour this engine was originally painted? I think it is about a '95. There seem to be a number of flavours of grey available.

Thanks,

Hugh

ask any merc/mar dealer to look on the EPC, the paint clours and codes are on a service bulletin, or look in the acceseries guide the information is in those items at all the merc/mar dealers

Not a particularly brilliant job (it has yet to be sanded / cut-in / polished) but a bit better than before.

God job. Like to see old motors come to life. Let it cure properly before cutting with anything. Mezerna 203S isn't too aggressive a polish. Use with a rotary polisher then seal with Collinite 476, then stand back and admire your handy work.

Be very careful with rotary polishers near angles. You'll be amazed just how fast they'll go through the paint.
I use Farecla G3 with medium and soft pads to polish after flatting & removing nibs with 1500 or 2000 wet&dry used wet. I SMART repair professionally & this is on 2K paints - both solid & clearcoated.
