CPC464 grey metalwork paint colour?
« on: 19:05, 19 December 20 »
Hi,


I'm currently restoring another CPC464 and I have a keyboard badge and tape deck metal badge with a few scratches/chips I'd like to have a go at re-touching.


Normally I'd leave these as acceptable wear but they're a little beyond acceptable.


Is there a colour reference of any kind for the Amstrad grey.


Any help appreciated.


Cheers


Pledg.

I guess a good reference should be a RAL code?

  • It's not broken, it just hasn't been fixed yet.

I think someone made a sticker to replace the artwork on the disc drive cover?

Someone created "modern and updated" ones, but I found them gawdy as hell to look at.
Made the CPC look almost 'Fisher Price' like.
Currently playing on: 2xCPC464, 1xCPC6128, 1x464Plus, 1x6128Plus, 2xGX4000. M4 board, ZMem 1MB and still forever playing Bruce Lee.
No cheats, snapshots or emulation. I play my games as they're intended to be played. What about you?
