Looking really good! What paint and primer did you use? How did you apply it? Is that a Super A?

Yes it is a 1950 Super A.
All parts that would come off were powder coated. It's a little more than (good) paint, and a strong finish. The body was painted with Du Pont Chroma One auto paint. They used a scanner to get the color, and it is dead on. I went to Harbor Ft. and bought a $39.99 gravity spray gun on sale for $9.99. Mixed a reducer and activator with the paint. The primer is Tractor Supply oil metal primer. I tested an area with a brush, and it flowed so good the only brush mark was where a piece of the brush stuck to the body. Did the whole body with a brush. The qt. of red paint ( hold on to your hats) was $115.00. I got it for cost.

Still working on getting it started. putting new plugs and fresh gas in. I'll let you know how it goes.
