i got in an argument about what the caps look like on a "67 rusto. The can i have looks like old school cap, weird color, wavy etc. The one this guy was saying looks like a modern day tester cap? is that right? can anyone settle this dilema? i refered to a "National Blue" He was looking at his "ready -mixed Aluminum" i know someone out there knows...let it be known. I got cans to trade hit me up!

every one of the 67's i've seen has the red stock tip with a white center.. these are the caps that come on the cans, as they've got the removable 'condom' over them. i have also seen a white stock tip on one of them, but i have no way of knowing if it was replaced.

 

post pics if you need more.

I thought I had a pic of retardo, I need joe to help me on that one I think. I do happen to have some of these pics for you...most of them are on containslead, and the rest were on here originally from the first few pages. Since they dont show anymore, here they are again...

An old allentown spray paint. Notice the speedy dry bite, or should I say rusto stole from them, I think they were first.

Chineese reds, I am looking for cans in this color name only. The masury is dynasty red, but close enough.

Supro white, dig the funky 70's wallpaper graphics.

Monroe walnut, one of the first odds I found, along with some nice non-odds. Everyone rembers their first, this is where it all started.

Kmart skinny can. Diamater of a speedy dry, but as tall as a normal can.

50's Utilac. Found the cans in one store and the sign in another all in one day. Another find from the early days of digging...

 

Thats all for now. I have some mini 6oz avocados that I am selling for $80 each. Mint with condoms, I also have a mint 68 pastel aqua for sale, and one MINT GREEN 1968 fat seam with condom. Get at me if your interested.

oh boy... Weekend.

it's shitty paint with an interesting history.

you stole the picture off a website, but those are new, recent cans that Sherwin Williams makes. budget budget stuff.

but originally, IllBronze made that line, with some really really nice colors. Sky Blue and Desert Orange come to mind.

 

Desert Orange? who put THAT together?!

I don't think anyone really focuses on OSH.. I know that it's still made and sold in Orchard Supply Hardware stores. And yes, it is still made with a paper label.

 

I am unaware of any colors being discontinued, but then again OSH isn't anywhere near me. Californians?

OSH is the shit! (to me anyway) heres the story. all paper labels say 1984 on the back. THEY ARE NOT PAPER LABEL ANYMORE. most stores you might find some, but most carry only the metal cans with the new can design and shape. the colors are the same, but i still think the paper labels are cool cans. they are discontinued and getting harder to find every day. the plum was discontinued all the way, so a paper label of the plum would be nice to have. dope fiend blue is the illest color osh ever made! i would want it if i didnt already have it!:shook: :shook: :shook: :shook: :shook:

Guest crack is wack

yo slyle

 

they had maybe 3 of the blues and one can of the yellow in those hobby paints. they also had sets of borden "home accent" i guess the first version of the short cut they were dated 1990 they also had a paper label set of Illinos Bronze Hobby work paint looked to be about the same age. the illinois line features a few dope colors my fave being "miami green" which is a short cut version of mint green. ill post the illinois bronze ones in a sec but lemme know if you want the blues or yellow i dont know how much longer theyll be there. the store was seriously depleted since last i checked....

paper label marking paint borden/krylon...

off the top of my head i want to say that they might have started that in the early 80's but i know for a fact that most of the ones out there are very late borden run. like 85-91. yet another example of "don't let the paper labes fool ya!".. those are probably just like many of the industrial line, which look older then they are.

 

krylon used paper labels on and off on different cans all the time, even into the SWP years.

is that the can where they try and hustle on the "yo dondi used this in the children of the grave train" card? 50$ for sand rusto (regardless of who used a similar can) is downright tacky , and obviously said person will be collecting basball cards whenever they becom the hot shit again. fuck that.

That tuff and easy is water based dont use it, its shit. Some store owner wanted to give me a big box of them, I had to pass, the only thing they are good for is book ends...if that.

 

Canadian paint, mmm...those older krylons look interesting, and tremco, thats some good shit, at least the ones I got. I am looking to get my hands on some older canadian panit, I wonder about the dates, they say spray paint, not interior exterior, but I think there is an american krylon can under, wonder which one.

not a dumb question at all..

 

rust-oleum is the easiest, you can often even tell the MONTH of production on older cans. copyrights are clear.

 

krylon is tougher, but let's see.. sticker-capped cans are early 80's to 91, paper label BORDENS can be from 66 to 80 (several other factors). check manufacturer and on sherwin williams cans, check the Revision date (Rev)

 

other brands are all different.. but think about it like this- barcodes came in in the late 70s- krylon was one of the first. if there's no real warning on the front of the can, it might well be a 1960 or earlier can. a paper label is NEVER a sign of age on a random can- lots of people still use paper labels. there's lots of other factors, and since you're in canada, it'll be still different. post up pictures for more data.
