Tips for making systainers look new again (?)
« on: May 08, 2017, 12:24 AM »
Hello to anyone who reads this,

   Just thought I would share an option for those with systainers in which magic erasers and pressure washers no longer have an effect on.  Or maybe they turned a disgusting yellow,you tried retrobrite,  and you have discovered the yellow comes back soon enough. 

      I am sorry I do not have a before picture, but do have a during and after.  The first picture is after I primed then spray painted the systainer using Montana Gold Acrylic spray paint.  I found that their color "Marble" is a pretty convincing match.  The second picture shows the can, along with a contraption I use with a recip saw to make sure can is mixed. If you do not shake acrylic spray paint very well, you get a lot of blobs spit out.   The third picture is a "vivid lime green" Liquitex paint marker I use to re-paint the Festool lettering.  The last picture is the after photo, with only the one second down from top being painted.  Not perfect, but looks way better than it had. 

Maybe this helps, or maybe not. Just thought I would share.

Welcome to the forum!  [smile]

     Nice job! Maybe post an update in a while as to how well the paint holds up?

     Those paint markers are handy for things.

     And the can shaker ..................  [big grin]
