Bart,

My '60 truck lock bird has the red paint in the upper half still, but no lower torquise. I guess it has faded away over the years....

Here is the link for the red color "Insignia Red" from Tower Hobbies.

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXHG09&P=7

Stock NumberLXHG09 Tower's Low Price 2.49

It dries darker than it looks on the web page, and is a perfect match to what I had on the emblem.

Default Completed Trunk Emblem

Here's a photo of the completed 60 HT trunk emblem using the Testors Insignia Red and Turquoise.

By the way, if the two springs inside of the slide lock are weak, or missing, you can use two ball point pen springs. Stretch the springs to get the length that you need to keep the slide lock in the up position.

Cool

Bart that looks fantastic and really dress's up the rear lock assembly. Now I have another project over the winter, as it really looks great.

I used the pen springs on mine -- gotta have a cheap matched set.

When I opened the back, there was only one spring -- I guess that's why it drooped a little every once in awhile.
