I’ve got a 1970′s 24″ Webb AB series mower that could do with some paint work sorting out. It seemed difficult to pin down what colour the paint used was so I bought a British Standard colour swatch book and here I am publishing the result of my investigations.
At first when looking at the top of the mower nothing seemed to be a great match to the presumably faded paint. But then I removed the unneeded brake from the rear roller (I don’t have the seat), the unfaded paint on this part is a very close match to Olive Green (220-381C) which I’m confident it must have been painted in originally.
Mine’s the earlier belt driven one, but I think this will also apply to the later chain driven model and other Webbs of around the same age.
