I have some hard to reach areas on Sweet Pea that I wanted to be bright work. But in no way in hell wanted to open up a can of worms under 50 years of god only knows is holding it all together. So what do you do?
Paint? But here is the issue. paint looks like… well…paint. There is a reason bright work is so magical. The glow, the sparkle , light, and tone differences. I did not want to do some sort of wood grain type thing. That would be tough to keep up. And many of the parts I am dealing with are far away.
I found an old NOS can of TEAK Pettit paint, and that came close. better than the Bright Work Brown they make now. I tried it and it was close but lacked the glow. So a give away. And then it happened. I have an old can of 1Shot Copper lettering paint.
