Boy am I glad to have found this site. I have a 56 I just removed the body from the frame. And I can't figure out the proper paint for the chassis and frame. Can't seem to find any information on Google. So hopefully somebody here can tell me what will be proper. it's a amateur restoration. But I'd like to have it look correct. There's a lot of stuff out there on the market for frames
Two things to buy: The Mark II restorer's Guide from the LCOC Money well spent and a boat load of basic high gloss black for the chassis. The chassis was a painted black as was all of the suspension. Look around the site and you will find a great many pictures. Also peruse this site that Barry has showing a mechanical resto (that puts a lot of professional resto's to shame.):
Be warned it is long and you may loose some sleep...
