Brown 302
« on: May 16, 2014, 02:05:11 PM »
I had a 302 shell and handset painted, when I dropped it off I requested the phone to be painted brown, well the guys said they didn't have any brown, they said they could make up some browns and for me to come back and pick one, well I said brown is brown what ever you come up with is fine, well at first I did not like it at all, but after putting it together I like it, the color is very different.

...well I said brown is brown...


Scot,
 
The one you got with the "painter's choice" color is nice.
 
Check out a paint store.  There are a zillion shades of colors.  Straying from the standard colors opens up a whole world of phone collecting.  Imagine a whole collection of various shade brown 302s!

I changed the dial card, this one matches the color of the phone.
