Painting the Cab | 223 project

Maynard assigned Lee Witten (a very non-professional painter) the task of painting the 223 cab. Some felt it a shame to cover up the nice woodwork but historical accuracy dictated it. Lee painted the outside with a flat finish black then applied a coat of satin polyurathane to give it a semi gloss. Lee chose a light green for the interior but Maynard found a wooden structure from the original cab which shows a much darker green. A local Ogden paint store, Weber Paint and Glass, was able to match the original green very closely. Lee grew to know the interior of the cab well having painted it three times....primer, erroneous light green, correct dark green.
