No, the clock was a purchased item so not necessarily the same color.


The clock, speedometer and instrument panel (oil pressure, fuel, etc) are all the same color. It just looks like the trim is a slightly darker color, but didn't know if that was due to it being painted over the chrome vs being painted over metal. Or if it was indeed a different color.

Rustoleum gray. Brush on, gently wipe off, leaving some in the grooves.


Yeah I tried that on a piece, however I sprayed a primer on first to test and carefully wiped off the raised portion of the grooves with acetone and that left the recessed grooves with primer still in them. I was going to follow up with a rattle can paint and repeat with the acetone wipe, leaving the recessed grooves with paint still in them.

1937 dash trim color

I have a 1937 120-C. I'm thinking this is original. The color that's painted within the metal trim. I got this all rechromed, so this is a before picture. I've seen pictures online where some just leave it all chrome without repainting, I've seen some pictures where they just repainted inside the larger center groove. My question is, is my picture the way it should be painted? And also it may look like it's a darker color than the clock inner gray color. Would it be the same color as the inner color inside the clock to match or is it indeed a black color? Thanks in advance.

How many you want?

Good donation to this website and you pay shipping.


I just need one. What's the condition? Will it need to be rebuilt? DM me for a donation amount as I don't really know how much one would go for. Shipped to CA, would you have an idea what that may be? Thanks

Looking for suggestions here. I replaced the old tired worn piece. I basically applied a clear protective finish on it. A few coats on both sides. Should I go a little extra and apply an undercoating to the bottom of it? For a little extra protection and sound deadening.

Would anyone have a 1936-1938 goddess of speed hood ornament base? I already have the goddess herself, I just need the base. She is in NOS condition, so I'd like to get a base in similar or a good candidate for replating. Thanks in advance.

My car was a partially disassembled basket case when I got it and a question I have for you is on the metal bow attachment bolts. I'm missing them and they look to me that they were 1/2-13 bolts threaded about a half inch below the hex head, then just a straight shaft thru the bow and into the mounting bracket? If this is correct I'm going to have them made unless anyone knows where I can obtain a couple?
Thanks
Dave


Dave. I don't know if these are what you were talking about. If so they are 5/16-18. Unfortunately I don't know where to obtain them. I vaguely remember seeing them somewhere but I can't remember where.
