    Contact Mac's Antique Auto Parts. They provide excellent service. They sell a 12 oz. spray can of '26-'41 Ford green. Their part number is RSP6 and it's on page 274 of their current catalog. It's priced at $3.95 plus shipping.You can contact them at 1-800-777-0948 or [B][/B]
    It's easier to contact by phone........It would be a shame to go to all that work and not paint it the correct color...Good luck...Mike

    P.S......if they don't have it in stock,you might try various 32-48 parts suppliers. You will also enjoy a website.... [B][/B] It has many '32 Ford pics,parts and info. It's an excellent site and worth the time.

    Going slow, not being a draftsman I am trying - gluing Original Flathead - fitting - bending - etc. to fit engine, exhaust, mechanical brakes, etc. and making mistakes seeing as there are no drawings for placement. Makes life interesting. Fortunately it is spring time in the mountains so there are many things to do to occasionally get away from all this. Motor pretty well finished. Just waiting for wishbone to dry before hanging it.

    Zowie, Syd. You nailed it! That's a stock flathead if I ever saw one. You've now become an advanced builder. I told you it was only a matter of time before you realized it. It's exactly the same thing Don told me. Don't worry about speed. Go at whatever pace you set. Go ahead and make mistakes. That's the only way you learn. There's no deadline or any production schedule. Keep doing what you're doing.
    Sometimes a handful of patience is worth more than a truck load of brains. Have the courage to trust your own beliefs. Don't be swayed by those with louder voices. W.S. Maugham :)
