good method I read was to paint it red first and then shoot your gray. Wetsand carefully on the letters to get down to the red. Haven't tried it yet but it seems like the one I'd be best at.

I have read to spray over the "ford" with your ford red paint. after it dries well take Desitin baby rash paste and brush the paste over the raised lettering. Give it a good day to dry then spray your ford gray right over top of it after the gray has dried hard . You just take warm water and wipe of the gray paint over the raised lettering. The dipiar cream will pervent the paint from sticking to the red painthat you painted prior.

I used an 1/4" angled artist brush and just took my time with a steady hand. Same thing for the Ford script on the hood.

I laid mine on the living room floor and used a small artis's brush. I had my arm resting on the fender to help keep my hand steady. I let the paint thicken a little so that it would stay where I put it and not run.

I think it was Dell that said he wrapped and old T-shirt around

a 2 x 4, wetted it with paint and used it as a stamp.

I have not tried it yet but I will one of these days.

The decals are very difficult to get on straight.

Stencils are available for them so you can use spray paint.

The stencils I bought are single use and have to be trimmed.

I ruined them when trimming so I never got to try those either.

So short answer is no, I haven't found an easy way.

Thin paint so it flows/smooths out and an artist's brush in a
steady hand.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
