Hey guys - I'm going to town on my Mibs and I thought I'd get some advice on webbing paint. I'll get more of the project up soon, I promise! I see Clay on pinrepair recommends Pratt & Lambert black lacquer, but it appears they no longer make a black. I've checked with several local paint stores, as well as both big box and small hardware stores, including a P&L dealer, and no one has black lacquer (many offer clear, or rattle cans.) One place offered to mix up a gallon minimum for $40 (I'm guessing I need a pint or so, maybe a quart after dialing in the touch-up gun.) I also see that a auto parts chain (O'Reilly) has a quart for $25 (another told me that lacquer is on EPA's "hit list" and will be harder and harder to find.) So just wondering:
1) Anyone know a likely alternative source?
2) Advice on what works well for webbing besides black lacquer?
Thanks in advance for your help!
