Topic tags/keywords: question plane refurbishing

I have a Stanley plane type 16 that has lost the paint on the logo. Does anyone know what paint would be the best replacement (I was thinking perhaps something like Rust-oleum enamel), also did type 16 have yellow, orange, or red enamel on the lever cap?

Just my thoughts:
I do not like the painted lever caps, and don’t repaint unless the cap is almost pristine.
Stanley seemed to use the worst colors available. YELLOW??? What’s with this? Orange/red? Same comment.
The raised logo just seems to be classical without the “goopy” color”.
There! Now I feel better, and soda blasting will remove all that crap quickly.

Thanks. Good to know, my lever cap is in only ok condition and I personally only like the orange.

I use the Duplicolor “pens” that are used for scratch repairs. Might see IF they have the same colour as the Dodge Charger uses. I use one of the reds for the Millers Falls ones…
