Ok - I searched both the Pre War and Post War forums on this subject. So the Dante Red was an engine color for 1 year (I forget which - late 40's), and it's a wheel color for numerous years. As such Hirsch sells this color. I would appreciate if anyone who has some of the Hirsch paint could send me a sample, ideally sprayed over some primer or maybe on white paper or card stock (or a scrap of tape or masking paper, etc.). My purpose is to have a sample to use to get as close to this color as possible with powder coat at my local powder coat shop for the wheels on my '51 76R. I had the wheels powder coated for my '51 41D, but for that one I just picked a red from the "in stock" colors. From photos, it appears as though it came out somewhat too bright / light / to the orange side. But since I'm not doing a per-original restoration on the 41D, I'm not really worried about it. And now, with the hubcaps on, there's only the little ring of red that shows anyway, which looks good enough for what that car is. I did do a little extra that someone on here suggested and had the tire shop use the stick-on internal weights so there's no hammer-on weights visible. But for the 76R, I'd like to get closer to the original color. If this works out, I'll publish the powder coat info (as close as I can do by eye with picking a non-custom-mix "catalog" color from the powder coater). Thanks!

Hi all, I'm cleaning fifty years of gunk off of the generator of my '52 72R. Usually when I clean these components up there is a trace somewhere, a clue, a little scrap of paint or three that indicates the part's original color. So far I've found no clues as to what color the generator housing might have been painted, if any. Was it bare steel, or was some paint applied to them? Anybody know? :confused:
Hi everyone. For those of you who helped me on my last few posts, thank you very much. The car is coming along very nicely. A few more odds and ends on the wiring side of things and I will be very happy. I have a question on the paint though. One of the previous owners clipped off a piece of the metal tag under the hood so I dont know if this car is supposed to be 1 color or 2. I have attached pictures of the plates under the hood to see if anyone out there would know what color my car is SUPPOSED to be since the colors on there now are definitely not the right ones. Any input on this is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
