Default I also use ...

satin black on all my chassis parts. I get my paint, primer, and thinner from Catapillar. The primer is cat flat yellow which makes not missing anything on the finish coat easier. I think they call it intermediate black. It runs about $30 a gallon and is tough stuff . Should be in stock at any Cat dealer. Mike

Default Thank You

Thank You for Your input, to my surprise You all have the same understanding for the right color.

Before that posting I thought about red, but I learned that this will be wrong.

Now with Your help I decided to make it dark grey metallic.

When I am ready I will post some pictures

Simply AMAZING! I read colors like baboon red, gloss/matte black, then the foremost authority, Alan Tast, chimed-in with the correct original Ford factory scheme.

The final choice?... None of them.



Nice paint job, but... see the pads (where the brake shoes have developed deep grooves)? All need to be filled-in with steel (welded) and smoothed with a grinder. This is far more important than paint color. Did you spray HIGH TEMPERATURE paint? If not, you may end up with a gummy mess, coming off the autobahn. Hope this helps. - Dave

That's why I like to powdercoat my parts. More durable than paint and easy to keep clean.
