    The funny thing JLA is I only painted it that color for a joke so I could put it on TFF. I got it all bolted up and my wife saw it and she said in a serious way, "Are you sure you want to repaint it", so I just had to laugh.

    I am going to paint it BSU blue and orange this week and then I'll post the pics.

    I must admit, it makes my reloading bench stand out, just in a different sort of way.

    I would but the pic makes it look better than what it is. The press is actually the color of this text.

    Can't many folks say they have a Barney looking RCBS press! I would leave it.

    BTW, is that grey tray thing plastic or metal? I have one here that looks like that but it is plastic (don't remember the color, though) that I don't have any use for. Anyone need one?

    My tray is aluminum. This press was a disaster. The tray was horrid but with some elbow grease primer and paint it came out good. Once I fullt reassembled it and tried it, it runs like it is new.

    If no one wants that tray, I would take it. Let me know.

    I was in a Barney happy mood. It will be blue and orange for Boise State University this week starting today.

    If you're going to the trouble to paint it orange and blue - might as well paint the correct shades of each instead of that funky Boise Blue!
