The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

 Post subject: Looking for the closest spray paint color match to G & P
PostPosted: Sun Sep 02, 2007 6:30 pm 
I've got an itch to paint a Nerf Longshot to match up with my G & P PR. The PR is in its stock form right now, so I'm looking for some paint that would match the shrouds on the G & P setup.

I realize that I could just paint the shrouds and the Longshot using the same paint, but I'm rather partial to not taking the PR apart again - it was a real headache when I discovered that I put the bracket that connects the Spas Pump to the gray tube the surrounds the shotgun shell in backwards.

Any color suggestions? It's not like I can take the PR to my local Wal-Mart or something like that :) I'll probably take the magazine cap down to the store, but if anyone's actually approximated the G & P color with spray cans, I'd love to know what brand and color was used.

That's what I use my original G+P bottom for.

Color matching only. I went to Finishmaster to

get a match. They supply auto body shops.

I spray with a hvlp spray gun.

I figured the only way to get a proper color match would be get a custom color mixed.

Did you experiment with spray paints before getting the color custom made?
