Beautiful workmanship and happy to hear that it is going back to work again to do what they are designed to do.
With the colour green are Listers Brunswick Green and if so is it Deep or Mid Brunswick Green?

Well done, what a lovely old machine. I suspect that it will outlast any modern pumping equipment and be much more efficient.
I don`t believe that Brunswick green is available in the USA so it would be interesting to know what color that is.

I'm not sure which color Butch uses but I found an off the shelf color called "Mack Green" that is pretty close. Maybe not quite as dark but a close match to the original examples I have seen. It is the stock color for the heavy truck manufacturer Mack Trucks here in the US. Then again I have 3 original CS engines that I imported from the UK and all 3 have slightly different paint. Here is a startomatic base that I stripped and repainted with that color a few years ago.

Ya of you give the European color codes to a paint supplier in the states your just going to get a dumb look. Our pigments must be different because they absolutely cannot match mid Brunswick green here. Ive tried with painted samples from England and some paint that A good friend here on LEF sent me.
 The Banford is painted with Rustoleum Hunter green, the closest thing Ive found here.
