I painted it black a couple months ago and don't know why since the body is blue. I think I ally had black paint. I thought it might be ok but it didn't look right so now it blue.I know 1914 should be black but I like the blue with black fenders. Could always switch colors in a day.

Looks good!
My '18 is gonna be black chassis (fenders etc) with garnet or siren red body or some-such. Wrong? Yes. No. Just different like your deep blue.
Have you shown your "colors" yet?

Blue can be right for 14, black came in later in the year.

Cory,

Very nice paint job. Is that a base coat/clear coat system?

I painted my turtle yesterday too!



I'm even learning to say within the lines!

It is single stage PPG Omni acrylic urethane. I've never used base coat clear coat. I know GM uses it at the factory and I've got 2 Chevrolets with the clear coming off, that would be my luck.

Looks very nice Cory. I used single stage acrylic from the NAPA paint store here in town on my 2 cars and they came out very nice.

You don't have to use a clear coat to have a great paint job. To each his own in that regard I guess.

I need to paint the top irons. I wonder if I should paint them blue or black. I guess if they were bolted in the body before painting they would be body color but black if they put them on later.

Cory-
I agree that it would make sense that the body irons would be painted the color of the body.
However, on my blue bodied cars, I painted my irons black.

I agree with Keith. The top irons to me would look out of place being blue.

Thanks! I keep looking at it. That set it off. I can't believe I finally have almost the whole car together. It's been on and off again work for 23 years.

Is that a Hudson in the background? Maybe 1941?

Clayton, the brand code is 17935. Omni away (MTK) . David, yes that's a Hudson 1947 Commodore 6
