Please can someone recommend a modern paint equivalent that I can use on my 1926 EW.
Douglas Silver isn't a colour that my local paint supplier recognises. Can't think why!!!

Stuart,

Not seen too many original paint jobs, but the few I have seen look more like 'aluminum' than silver.  This could just be fading over the years, but I suspect that you probably would not be far wrong using a light silver or aluminum rather than a silver that might have too much grey in it.  And stay away from metal flake silver!   :)
