    I love my Panasonic PW6. Unfortunately I blew mu budget on the plasma and had to settle for a cheap stand. The Panny is black but the stand is battleship grey. So I want to paint the stand black to match the display. This would not be a problem if (a) I knew the exact colour and (b) were not alone - I'd simply dismount the display and spraypaint the stand. But I'm alone so cannot dismount the display which means lots of masking tape and being very careful with a paintbrush.

    So, what exact colour do I need? And any tips on the painting?

    go to your local brown brothers or another local car paint (bodyshop) distributor, they got a selection of colours called RAL colours, they got approx, 40 shades of black 40 shades of grey , pick an appropriate one, and they will mix it and put it in an areosol for you, lightly key up the stand with a fine grade of wetndry, mask up and apply light coats, waiting 10 mins between coats.

    40 shades of black? Clearly I've been missing something... :D

    I did that, I was alone, but not even in a million years I'd spraypaint a plasma.
    Anyway, once you figure out how to dismount the stand from the plasma just use a simple B&Q black spray. If you want a real good black then pre-paint the stand with a pure white color, then spraypaint in black.
