    So I got an e-mail a few weeks ago from Gavin @ Ultimate Reloader and he had posted the Rust-Oleum “Regal Red spray paint for LNL stuff you make. I grabbed a can last time I was at the store and set it on a shelf, nothing to paint with it, got bored the other night and just had to use some of it up! "Special Edition LNL" Maybe too much coffee...:banghead:

    I like it and will do the same when I get a chance!! It would be nice if Hornady did that at the factory after they true the top of the press, but it'd probably add too much to the cost of the L-N-L. Did you use bushings (taped up) to mask off the bushings "permanently" mounted in the press?

    I took "Blue" 3M painters tape and just covered the whole top, the ran a thin razor knife (the kind wallpapers use) around the bushing, and pulled the rest off, you'll find there is a small gap there so it guides real easily Funny thing, I cleaned the top with acetone and then just sprayed it. I left it mounted and just used newspaper and taped my bench. After the first couple passes the little dimples in the casting started to pinhole, so I let it set for about 25 min and the resprayed it pretty heavy to fill them in, because of the extra heavy spray job, it wrinkles and almost perfectly matches the kind-of hammered powder coat on the rest of the press! It takes a few days before it is completely hard.

    added these photos, just cut around the bushing and peel off. I just stuck these back on for photo.

    Nice job! The pics look great.

    I wonder what the other blue koolaiders would think if I painted my 550?
    Maybe even the colors of my favorite football team?
