My BIL had a HK Monaro about 18yrs ago and sold it off unfinished (stupid told him not to).

 

Anyway he had 5L of Picardy Red COB and told me i could have it for $100.

 

As stated it's 18yrs or so old; never been opened.

 

A. Would it be ok still?

B. I haven't seen a Picardy Red car for the longest time.

 

What do you blokes reckon for my LJ? Or would i be better going another red (if i was going to stay red).

 

If the paint is no good I'll prob go silver :D

 

Thanks, Mark.

A. Paint is probably better now, B. i would not use a cob when it's actually a solid colour, C why not do it in Salamanca red, solid 2 pack, not every torana is red nowadays, so it will be a bit different & look nice i think ! I certainly wouldn't take the risk of paint that old.
