    The top of the 8 drawer was black, they had about 3-4 coats of paint applied with a roller followed by 3-4 of varnish again with a roller, finally a thin gold strip about 3 or 4mm wide was applied about 1cm up from the base. The fibre glass base was black with the colour applied to the gel coat, not painted. The 6 draw you could get in all black, two tone blue burgundy/blue or burgundy/black ( the burgundy being the base colour). A friend of mine used to work for Boss, and told me how they made them.

        Brian the original Boss is mostly as Chevey say's but the paint finish to the drawers unit is hammerite black the drawer fronts are mahogany stain.
        I have an incidental on my left shoulder, he's always there, he's my friend.
        He says he gives me good advice. does he ?

          This is the 6 drawer that I refurbished.




          The only difference is that the 8 drawer base was Black. The colour of the base is impregnated into the fibreglass gel coat and I was lucky enough that mine just needed a good dose of elbow grease and a decent coat of wax.
          The drawer casing was in good condition once I cleaned it up and just needed a couple of minor chips touched in with some gloss black enamel prior to a good waxing.
          The seat was recovered by a professional upholsterer.
          The drawers were just stripped back and restained and varnished. However I did partition the drawers out to fit my needs at the same time.

              Thanks creepy.
              The box has a new home now as I've changed to a Platt-forms series 3.
