Default Brewster Green

I am in the process of restoring a Dempster class E engine and have been told that the color is the same as Rumely Oilpull. Wendel lists DuPont 24166, Brewster Green as the Rumely color. Dempster states that their engines are painted "a rich Brewster Green". Yet when I look at a Rumely tractor it is a rather light green while DuPont 24166 is a greenish black. Can any one help ??? mike

Mike...24166 Green is a dark green. My guess is the Rumely you looked at was painted the wrong color. Ed

I would like some input on Brewster green. I took that number to the local NAPA paint counter and they said that the computer kicked it back out as no longer being a good number. They were able to look it up by the name, but it came out at $100 per QUART!!! and you still had to buy the catalyst and clear on top of that! I can't afford paint that is that expensive! So my question is, where can you get a base/clear brewster green that is affordable?

Brewster Green is also a color found on Model A Ford automobiles.
If you have any Model A restorers in your area they may be able
to send you to someone that paints their cars. Check the web for
Model A clubs in your area to obtain a contact phone number. One
word of warning, those antique cars are every bit as addictive as
the hit-n-miss engines are! good luck/gv
