Red Tip not International Harvester Red
I have obtained and used Krylon International Harvester Red to restore a worn Red Tip. It is the most popular candidate among BBers as being the original and authentic color of the Red Tip. However, I must challenge this factoid's veracity as shown below [sorry for the poor focus, but new at this].
From Left to Right
1] Valspar Royal Garnet
2] Untouched vintage Red Tip
3] Another untouched vintage Red Tip
4] International Harvester Red-painted Red Tip.
In my opinion, International Harvester Red is pretty, but not close to the vintage Red Tip color. Royal Garnet is much closer.
What say you?
