The original cabinet color was a VERY dark maroon.  I've only seen one 
that color, most all have been repainted black.  Johnson was never noted 
for the quality of their paint!  If you have a spot of clean paint on 
the inside of the cabinet or somewhere else, you can get it matched at a 
Sherwin Williams paint store.

The front panel is a two-tone gray, slightly darker than the Viking II, 
at least in the ones I've seen.

> I have just recently acquired a Viking I and need to redo the cabinet.  Is there anybody out there who knows the correct paint formula ?  The dark almost black color on the cabinet is different then the color of the Viking II cabinet.  The front panel is in decent shape and just need to touch up around the mounting holes.  Any suggestions as to the correct color on the front panel ?  Appreciate and comments/suggestions on the repainting of the cabinet. Thanks.
