Hi all,
does anybody know, what kind of paint Yamaha used inside the bowls of the instruments? I tried to cover the inside with Epoxy and put on illuminating powder before drying, but that didnĀ“t work. Have a DT 250 from `75
Maybe you have an idea ?

1975 DT250 instruments had a greenish-aqua color paint on the inside.
Light was provided by a bulb.
No "illuminating powder".

Hi DEET, thank you. Both of my bowls are chromed new. If you rework instruments, do you apply new paint inside? I wonder what it would look like without compared to with coating inside, when bulbs ore on in the dark.
Never saw it switched on.

Yes... I repaint the inside surface on the ones that were painted originally.
At least two different colors were used depending on the year of manufacture.
