Hi there from Australia. Firstly let me congratulate you on your terrific website. Having received my first 325 (yes I am a lefty) at an early age I have now been able to start collecting 'Lefty' Mitchell reels and have used your website to date and rate them. However some of my reels have corrosion. I would like to refurbish these back to original but don't know what the paint specs are, particularly the black for the 301 and the blue for the 441a Match.

Greetings Selebi05,

Welcome to the Mitchell Reel Museum! :sBo_bouncing2:

Here's a string where repainting is discussed, but I can't remember any talk of matching colors perfectly.


I hope this helps a bit.

I posted one in Mitchell reel service, under saving a 406. This is what I used. Metallic black.
