Boeing light gray paint color
« on: August 04, 2018, 06:22:55 PM »
Does anyone have a recommended spray can color match for the light gray in the 737 cockpit (roof/ side panels)?

Thanks

David

I agree with Bernard and with him being in real ones, the grey colors range on the swatches. There is RAL 7011 that most people go with, so shoot for that...

WAIT?! I missed Bernard's hidden joke...50 Shades of Grey! In that case the colors might be tainted...EWWWWW!

John,

I think David means the very pale grey of the side wall panels and the two light grey panels in the overhead
I have looked myself but I have never painted these panels and tobe honest I used white on the side walls.

Perhaps you would know the colour.  :huh:
Joe.

I took a piece from my panels I got from flightsimparts.com to my local paint shop and they color matched it.

Proper color is Federal Standard 595 - 36440    Used on the sidewalls, roof, knobs etc.     RAL 7047 is an alternative but not an exact match

David,

I used this:

https://www.amazon.com/Rust-Oleum-7780830-Stops-12-Ounce-Primer/dp/B000Z8C3PM

It's a primer, so it has a very rough finish. To even out the texture, I sprayed some matte finish on top of it. To me the color looks perfect.

Several pictures are available at:
