You're confusing me now....! http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/think.gif

The red bars - are you saying that they're not really red paint, but used to be gas detection paint that has turned red because of the rust-proofer you've put on?

Cheers,
Glen.

Glen ,

The mentioned red bars are a reaction on the gas paint getting mixed up with the protection liquid. The gas paint was originally yellow , but when Steven put his protection liquid over the paint , it made a chemical reaction , so the yellow bar reacted and turned red , this is the same way like when it gets in touch with gas.

Is that a hint at how caustic/corrosive/carcinogenic/harmful modern day spray paints are? :P It reacts the same way as poisonous gas hehe

Nice finds!

During my internship at one of the competence centres of the Belgian army, I met a guy who had found a Colt M1911 in the Ardennes (Bastogne area). Interesting detail: it was loaded and ready to fire! I love the mystery behind such items, they always make me wonder what happened to the owner ...
