Mini-cases colors

Post by Rajah Lone »

I've retrobrighted my MegaST keyboard, but the result was not good: brighter but marbled.
So I decided to paint it with White color (like TT), leaving the keys the original yellow-gray ("beige" ?) color. Also not good.
Latest try was to repaint with a gray color, but the result is too bluish.

So I would like to know the exact color of the FireBee mini-cases. Is there a color reference somewhere? I would like to repaint my keyboard the exact color of the gray employed.

And for the records, here are all colours:

RAL 7044 Grey
RAL 7005 Black
RAL 5002 Blue
RAL 4010 Magenta

If somebody is wondering the 7044 is the color that matches most original Atari equipment we got. And of course Atari cases got a very very wide palette of possible colors these days! ;)

Rajah, I hope you will be able to get a satisfying keyboard after your 4th try now.

Though with all these layers of paint he might get a few keys stuck :D

I think to remove the bluish gray with smooth sandpaper.

For TT - I don't know, but for ST the RAL7044 is definitely too light, on the other side, there is RAL7030, which is slightly too dark (but much closer).

For XL series RAL1015 is almost a perfect match.
