Default Flat Black

I have only touched up the Flat Black with purchased spray paint from VAF advertiser Aircraft Spruce. They list 3 different colors. I do know of one friend that did gray and white touch up on a Hartzell years ago and I was not able to tell that there was any change in color.

Does anyone know if the Aircraft Spruce grey paint.

http://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalo...lickkey=280346

matches the Hartzell propellors? I need to touch up a couple small spots on my prop.

And is there a better option for a couple small nicks? After I have them dressed I'd like to put some paint on them.

Thanks,

-Dan

Table 6-12 in my Hartzell owner's manual has a table that lists Tempo and Sherwin-Williams colors and part numbers for all the colors.

ETA: ACS has the black, white and grey Tempo spray paints for Hartzell props:

Well, I have dressed a few nicks in my Hartzell blended airfoil prop I purchased new 3 years ago. I bought the Tempo A-151 Med Gray Epoxy Coating, P/N 09-00983 from ACS and it definitely does not match my original silver! Has anyone found the right product that will match?

At the very bottom of the page is a 'Forum jump' page. Select one e.g., PROPS. Now at the top of the new (PROPS) page is a 'new post' button.

I don't recall any tricks to safety wiring the prop bolts other than a lot of cussing.

Thanx for New Thread directions Bob. I had not used that before.
For the next guy > smooth both ends of the safety wire on a 3M wheel.
Put wire thru pin and push the point after it goes thru with a screw driver.
Grab end with needle nose pliers and pull it to start direction.
Push in 1/8" increments while gently pulling from other side.
Verify correct direction - I also used a few unprintables.
Got it done in about an hour. Shorter next time.

Glad this thread resurfaced.

What is the RAL code or BS code for Hartzell Gray.

Need to get some mixed.

Not looking for product, just the code to mix the paint as I want to use it as an interior color.

As said by others a real PITA but many of us will torque the bolts then if needed loosen the bolts one at a time to put wire through then retorque the bolt then onto the next one. Hard to explain but a lot of patience is required. :-)
