|Mike C 2N said: (quoted from post at 14:24:01 01/20/09) I have been getting mixed answers on the paint color for a 1945 Ford 2N so I wanted to throw it out to the forum. It looks to be 100% Ford Dark Grey. Any other answers?|
Basically everything that is painted is painted Battleship Grey. The rear rims are cadnium silver (but most people just paint them silver.) My dad and I painted his 9N mostly grey but painted the starter, carb, and seat black for a little contrast. Also, we painted the exhaust high temp. silver. Of course, the 8N colors look prettier but are not correct for the 9N/2N. The paint we used was a few shades light but my dad already had it and we didn't like the dark grey very much. The grille was painted separately and is close to the original shade.
