Re: Surprising Seagull SD discovery

RE. Does anyone know here the correct name for the Green Paint applied to flywheel?

IRR GREEN SATIN LRC553.
A traditional single part Synthetic Coach Enamel paint. This was used by the Army, RAF, & Royal Navy, occasionally over-painting NATO Green Gloss.

May or may not be the correct answer.

Re: Once more wildly off topic...
