paint code for the doors on varnished machine
« on: June 29, 2009, 08:04:42 pm »
help!  Does anyone have the paint code for the metal doors on the varnished b12's?  Guy at the Bombardier museum gave me a BASF #79984 and it does not seem to work here at the local NAPA store.  i am sure it is the right number,  but it is and old one so it may  not be in any current data base.  Hulio,  did you re-paint your b-12 doors?

Thanks

I am new to this site.  I have a 1948 B-12 that I am starting to restore.  It was originally varnished (I think) as the steering column is tan in colour but the exterior had been repainted red.  I would like to restrore to as close to original as possible.  Do you have any more information on the paint codes for the tan colour?

  Welcome aboard Wascana !! If you look up wooden bombardiers, go to VARNISHED MACHINES,  click on page 5 & find reply # 65, you'll find out what Oldsledz did to his.
  Would you have any pictures of your machine for an old trucker to have a look at ??

Thank you for the reply Old Trucker.  I do have pictures that I will post & I will get those as soon as possible.  I went through all of the posts on varnished machines.  There is much there that I can learn from what Oldsledz has done.  I am looking forward to moving along with this project!

Thanks,
Wascana
