I bought one of those in April, mine was brown and painted it with Rustoleum Painters Touch Gloss Colonial Red. Now If you watch the Shout Factory releases of 205- Rocket Attack U.S.A. and 206- Ring of Terror, you can clearly see that the 'Haircut" dispenser is bright red and unpainted. with mine I decided to just paint it Testors Red Metalflake. Also DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY on silver spray paint, use Testors brush on model paint. No matter how hard you try to mask off the red the silver spray paint will always find a way to get onto the red.
