What a beautiful car! I'd be interested to see some "before" and "interim" photos of this project.

This is the same Rio Maroon I am planning to paint my 49. I just hope it looks this good. I would love to see some pics of the inside if it is finished and maybe some general specs. Stock, modified, engine, trans, brakes, etc. How did you find a match for the factory color?

Hi Steve:
The original color of mine was the maroon and that is what I want to repaint it. I think it is classic for a wagon with an ash and mahogany body. I hope to get the sheet metal painted this summer. So far the weather hasn't cooperated. It has been like a sauna and raining much of the time. How did you match up the color and where did you find a formula for it?
Gerry

The rubber gasket and painted steet flat retainer on the spare tire cover was removed and the paint on the strip was un touched and unseen since 1949. I sent it to a company in san diego and they matched it. I will get you the name this weekend. You can contact them and give them my name etc. and they will fix you up. It is a 1 step urethane and is $97/ QT. Takes 1-1/4 gals. It is great paint and needs no color sand and buff. Also used their poly red oxide primer surfacer thats great too.Will get to you later.......STEVE
