    Cool Green Magnesium Color

    Does anyone know if there is anyone on the planet who does the dark green finish on magnesium parts. I fly weekly and often see a similar finish on aviation parts.

    Try a search on the forum I know it's been covered on here before.

    Edit... I've had a search and found some info but it's around 12 years old, back then I couldn't find anyone who would post it overseas...It's TOXIC!!!
    It's for aircraft and marine anti corrosion use.
    However I've just ordered a can for £17+ inc' delivery* when it turns up I'll let you know if it's the correct shade of green.
    If it's OK then you could try to find a supplier in OZ.

    *It has to come via a courier as it's tooooo TOXIC to come through the postal service.

    Cool

    Bugger that’s not good Steve, is it paint or oven cured. Please PM when you get it, and have tried it, I work remote for 66% of the year with very little IT connection.

    Thanks in anticipation

    Have you tried Cerakote? Microns thick and very hard wearing. I have had my engine done in it completely and the alloy filler tank hole!

    It is really impressive stuff and should be adhere to magnesium, but worth a check, as they have loads of colours to select from.
    Torque is NOT cheap!
