This topic reminded my of a project I saw on the web by Robert a while back.

He had used filler and paint to mod his case.

Just ordered some of the filament mentioned earlier in the thread, will let you all know what it's like.

Philc I am looking at buying some PLA filiment.

What did you go with?? I can get RAL 7047 pretty easy(cheap) but it is one tone lighter than 7038

@Bikerbob 7038 isn't the same as an ST, it's closer to the case colour of an Amiga A500.

It might be worth you getting a sample first? And if it's good match I'll probably get some as well.

Well I am not that picky.. I am installing mods afterall, its not like I am trying to replace factory case items.

I have an A500 as well.. but its not needing anything :)

Bought an inexpensive Grey.. see how close that is.. I am going with it regardless.

Well the grey I bought was too grey. Oh well. I think for the TT030 Bone white is close.

As for the MegaSTE and MEgaST.. not sure what I can find thats close and not $70 a spool for a Pantone colour match.
