    BTW: What is the difference between gray and grey paint.

    Gray and grey are sort of like color and colour, but the distinction is actually more complex. Both spellings were used in England for many years, but the current usage is that Americans favor gray and other English speakers favor grey. But either is considered correct. So you could say there is a difference or you could say there is no difference. Pick one, or ignore it.

    Reminds me of searching for sanding disks or discs. About half the ebay sellers use only one or the other. The professionals use both in their titles.

    Glossy Grey has a lustre, while Glossy Gray has a luster. She thinks my lathe is sexy...

    If you're turning English threads, always your workpiece between centres...

    And if you're in the USA, it's unwise to lift your Lorry's bonnet and check for positive earth...

    In America Lucas is considered a good thing. The reverse is true in Britain.
    Is Darth Vader the Prince of Darkness or is it Joseph Lucas?

    I’m a Lucas and really good too. You can even ask my first wife. I contacted her on a lark after 42 years and the first thing she did was apologize for the way she treated ME! Four kids, five husbands later, WOW!

    Back to that grey Rustoleum. At Lucas Electric our trucks were bright red. However the interior custom wood shelving and anything else we painted was Rustoleum grey. Lots and lots of Rustoleum grey!

    Golly, Bill... I'd hafta say I've been struck by Joseph's Dark Saber more oft than Vader's Light Saber!

    My uncle had a Triumph triple in his collection that he warned me 'not' to use the electric turn signals... I'm not sure how it came to be that I was granted duty as ground-path for some aspect of the ignition system... but I'll NEVER make that mistake again...

    I used to be a SW paint dealer in the 70's.At that time there were more than a few different Navy grays.It depended which shipyard the paint came from and SW had formulas for them.

    When I worked in a Chevy dealership one of the body men asked me for a can of medium gloss black paint.I usually had gloss and flat but only had some marked universal black.
    I gave it to him and he got indignant and said he had to have medium gloss.I told him see the dot below the nozzle,turn the nozzle to the right and its flat,turn to the left its gloss and aim it to to the dot its simi gloss.

    "No shit ,its about time they came up that" he said as he went merrily on his way.I would have liked to hear what some of the other body men told him.

    We have had discussion on several types of paint here. So, Clear and Gray WHAT?

    Did you also tell him to shake it until it stopped rattling?

    battleship grey . they had no idea how long wars would persist . made much more than they could use.

    same as bullets... ever wonder why 30-06 is the most popular hunting cartridge? not 308 or 300 ? .
    the M-1 rifle used 30-06 , and there was a huge surplus.
