Is there someone who know the "RAL color" of the Mark V bino?

Thanks!

This the answer from Baader:

Dear Maurits,

This is a very special Zeiss Color wich can not be purchased in small quantity.
You better go to a local Car painting company or to a building center and let them measure the
color and then let them make a small portion of it.

Best regards,

My Baader arrived chipped... new. I think it's fragile paint. I have since put some grooves in it. Bino's are always right next to focuser clamp screws. I still love my Mark V though : )

Mine Mark V was indeed just arrived and new, with some damage (something like that I hate it).

With the right color it is so done, and now it "is new" and "looks new"!

Hi Mauritis,
Nice job! What paint did you use and where did you get it?

Pedro

Pedro, it come from a local Car painting company and they measure the color and then they make a small portion of it.

I don't know the color, but after measurement it's the same color as the Mark V.

Thanks Mauritis. I will try to the same, although it is for my scope, not binoviewer.
