How about British Racing Green? It´s close to RAL 6005 afaik. Very classic color and never out of date ;)

Always wanted to paint a machine with 6005 but I always end up with silver or crackle coating (very predictable :whistle:)

That was my first thought too. It wouldn't have any metal-flake in it either, just a straight classic green.

Haha I love that memory!, Be sure to find a picture for me some day! :guitar:
I love old cars, like sewing machines, Cars had soul back then, don't know when they lost is :huh:

The VW red is also super nice. was looking at the VW tangerine also. 

 

No, red might be weird on a sewing machine, I think it would make me sew too fast, like driving a red sports car. LOL. I have a pic or two of the old VWd floating around, I'll post when I find it!  Yes, tangerine would be nice for a sewing machine. I agree with that! A little warm in a peaceful sort of way.

Problem is, the green I wanted was this. Is has a lot more blue in it.

The dark RAL greens, all seam a little John Deere to me.

Oh boy, I like all greens. Green is my favorite color. That's s nice green too! But I like the Volkswagon much better. Just kiddin! Seriously though, you could paint that machine neon green and I'd still like it! In fact, I have a Neon green and Ultramarine Blue carousel printer (for tee shirt printing) in my shop. Haha!

SO the big day is her, got the paint down!! :thumbsup:

Gray primer... Just to tease a little :P

Im so happy with this color! It feel like its fits, since the paint was made around the same year as the machine. Also, it being German made. :D 

It will be less shiny, once I paint it in the satin primer.

And the new paint scheme. Think this will look so good when all the little things are painted. They will be finished in flat mat, as on the picture. To kind of resemble leather or the fabric of seats in the car.

There's something nice about a smooth even coat of grey primer, sometimes I think all it needs is a clearcoat over the top.:)

It's looking good so far, that green looks better than I expected.:specool:

So I think you are pretty good at this paint stuff! Do you have a background/work in the painting business? You do make it all seem simple. The mark of a pro!

Hehe, thank you guys/gals! :guitar:

No experience in painting, other then on hobby basis, painting my sons toys ect.
im one of those people, who really struggled in school, had such a hard time learning anything. Anything with my hands, I find really easy. 

The pro can see lots of problems in my paint job, most noticeable the "bumpy"paint.  It called orange peel effect. Its hard not to get when painting at home. For me at least. Something to do with the right temperature, moisture ect.  

Got the decals on now, even the little "oil" here ones. That green just loves the gold colour huh? B)

Now it only need the satin clear coat, and then I can reassemble it again.

Couldn't resist paining in the numbers on the lever

Have not encountered any problems yet, but I will bet they will come plenty in time!

There is some play in the needle bar however. Don't know how to fix it, since its only fastened with the bobbin basket at the one end, end the cogwheel at the other. 

Any suggestions?

That two-tone is very impressive. Well done. It's just a shame that some of the paint will wear off with use.

Wow! Stunning! She is  B E A U T I F U L !!! Well worth the wait! I know you need to get her all tuned up before you can start sewing on her, but what kind of sewing projects are you dreaming of? Can't wait to see what you will make and how she sews!

Oh, and that little brass piece you created that was missing is really special! Loved that and the way you restored the decals too.

Hehe I know. But for me, I cant wait. I like the used look. When I get a leather bag, I tend to ruff it up before use :)

THANK YOU so much!! really took some time yes, but she looks perfect in my living room right now. Next up, is custom building a table from scratch. I have a big thick oak slab in the basement I want to use! When I start, I will post in the same thread, if someone else would find that interesting maybe :thumbsup:

I sell dog collars in my shop, all hand sewn, but some people want a full harness, and that takes forever by hand!, That's where Karen comes ind. She will now make dog harnesses, with quilt and bindings. 

I must say, special thanks for you all people, I met a lot of residents from my friends, and you guys/gals cheers me on, really helped!
Without sewing Danishman and Jimi threads about this machine, I would not dare to start by myself
