Small Parts Painting
« on: August 05, 2022, 07:40:53 AM »
I have an original 5A air cleaner base that needs professional painting - Ford Blue. I have tried for years and just cannot get it right. If any of the restores is shooting some Ford Blue, I would really appreciate having a shout out to have it done CORRECTLY. The paint has been removed and it is ready for primer or whatever the process is.

Thanks for looking!

Keep in mind that since the bases were supplied separately from the engine building operation that the shade of Ford dark blue does not have to match exactly because of being painted separately and at different locations,conditions,batches of paint etc.
