Lake Placid blue is a 1958 Caddy color.
OOPS! My bad you are correct. I thought Pelham Blue was a GM color and L.P. Blue was Ford color but, yes, they are both GM colors.
Well enjoy the car anyways!
Ford used enamels since forever so different to either nitro or acrylic
Awesome video. God bless him for his service to this country!!
That was fantastic.
That was fun to watch, a great way to spend $1500 bucks. Older chrome bumper era cars are so much cooler than the modern replacements. Great to see the family enjoying that time with him.
That was kind of inspiring. Right now on my workbench is a guitar a friend brought to me. Its a 1959 Harmony flat top, cheap guitar to start with and really a piece of junk today. Needs a reset, frets, got a big hole in the side, tuners are toast. Simply not worth putting any effort in to it I told him.
Then my friend said it was his mother's guitar back in the folky days and he wanted to play it for her before she passed. I'll post pictures in the Workbench forum when I finish it
Sorry, but not correct. Just one reference jhere, but 1926 is considered the year when Ford made an extensive switch to lacquer"
"Henry Ford is reported to have said, "Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black." Before the assembly line, Ts had been available in a variety of colors, including red, blue, and green, but not black. Now, paint had become a production bottleneck; only Japan Black dried quickly enough, and not until Duco lacquer appeared in 1926 would other colors reappear on the T."
Correct. Errr, meaning "wrong". Sheesh, meaning enamel was NOT the only coating used by Ford.
FWIW in the coatings industry we never referred to lacquer as "paint" (nor 2-component epoxy coatings, or polyurethanes, or high build elastomeric costings (normally 5-100 times the thickness of a coat of paint, or magnesite sealer, or a few other "specialty coatings".
The term "paint" was used for flat and enamel wall, trim, siding, fence and trim paints.
Cuts down on confusion - like here, when a newbie says he wants to "paint his guitar" and asks what to do. The FIRST thing is to let him know guitars aren't usually "painted" - special coatings are used. And THEN point him in the right direction!
