A friend has the flat headlight lens that has the green "eyebrow"..... like the McBeth lens, only flat. His paint (for lack of a better word) is coming off. What is the green and is it available?

It's a medium 'ivy' green color. Any paint will work enamel would be fine.

Instructions on how to paint are in a 1919 or '20 Ford Service Bulletin. Only a portion of the top of the glass is painted inside with a curved shape described in the bulletin .

Was the paint opaque or transparent?
