Painted the 50mm finderscope tube this morning. It's dry to the touch, but I'll leave it on my rack in the workshop to cure for several days at least. It had a textured finish already, so I only lightly sanded it. In the sun, the pattern looks good. The color is very close to the Lowe's sample card. The lens cap is textured black, and in good shape. The focuser is satin black, and needs a light coat to cover the scratches.
