    Made a repair to a Optimus 111B case. The door flap was not closing properly and instead of bending I did some file work. Came out great. Looking for a spray can match for the blue on many Optimus cases. Any recommendations? Thanks.

    Unless anyone has found something different then Ford Cosmos blue is the rule of thumb.

    There are now companies which will fill cans to the colour of choice, but time and effort depending on your level of restoration may preclude that option.

    It all depends on whether you're going to be using the stove on a regular basis in my personal opinion. In which case whatever takes your fancy really. You can always strip and repaint anytime.
