  • Paint break question

    What is the correct way to apply the secondary color on a Victoria? Do you wrap the upper color around the back of the doors and the upper part of the door jamb or do you just spray the outside of the doors allowing a drift of secondary color into the jamb as in the paint and refinish guide? can somebody post some pictures of theirs?

    Remember, "It's just a Ford".....don't get fancy inside the door jambs.

    Just the out side of the body got the upper color, with over spray in the jambs. You'll want a cleaner job so you'll need to be creative using 2" tape and 'back tape ' the jambs. Use about 1 1/2" of tape to cover leaving 1/2" sitting above, outside the jamb. This will give you a soft, clean edge.

      Thank you Jim, I do want it to be correct but a clean look. Next I gotta figure out how to get the body to you for stripes.

      Attached is the 1st photo used over the years as a guide, from the De Angeles, Henry book ,the FORD MODEL A. They are not for a vicky but give the concept and attention to detail used . Production may have varied however for other years/ models, such as the 4 dr. sedans B pillar color break.

        Painting project for a 31 Fordor TS
        Senior Member
        by JohnB15632
        In 2019, I am planning on painting my 31 4D TS. There is a whole lot that I need to accomplish first. I am going to strip the entire body, prime the entire body, and then final paint.
        My question today, when it comes to priming and painting, do I paint with the doors on, or should remove the doors and paint the doors separately?
        At a class I took at a Votech school, the instructor thought...

        2 Hinges :cracked paint repair update
        Senior Member
        by plyfor
        Upon using the vendors' "tool" to remove hinge pins, we placed blue tape on the top surface to help protect the paint and some on the tool. The removed tape brought up some chips of paint with it., unfortunately some on the top/ vertical faces. The chips didn't appear to be too well adhered to the primer, possibly too much paint build up there. However,we were able to delicately peel away...

        Posted this on "the other site" thought I may get some different opinions here. Anyone have good things to say about this or? Also is it necessary to use a sword brush to paint a strip when using this product or will any artists type of brush work?

        masking A to apply final black paint
        Senior Member
        by JohnB15632
        I have been able to paint my A with the primary color, Maroon. Now I need to mask a lot in order to apply the black color.

        Would anyone be able give me tips, help, advise on how to apply this masking. Especially, how is the tape applied to go around corners such as the windows?
        Any advise would be much appreciated.

        Question on door closing on Model A
        Senior Member
        by copgib
        My vehicle doors do not close like they should, I have to slam the doors shut. It is a 1930 Model A Coupe and I haven't touch the doors yet. I was wondering if it could just be the latches or do you think the doors need to be realined. Then the next question would be, do I have a body shop fix the problem or is it something me and my mechanic could tackle. Thanks Hugh

        by wrndln
        I need to touch up a few very small flaws in my front fenders. These are not the colorsanding break thru's I recently posted here on VFF. These are about the size of a straight pin's head. The fender are painted with PPG Concept 9300 black. I have the same 9300 black paint I am going to use to touch up the fenders. My question is: Will the paint I use to touch up the very small flaws work OK...

        Painting the doors on a four door 170B Delux

        I'm in the process of painting my A Black and Maroon. When the doors are painted on the outside does the color scheme wrap around to the door jamb? Or is the jamb painted one color

        1917 paint gloss question
        by Fordfan29
        How much gloss did the original 1917 'T' paint have from the factory? Was the paint lacquer? What is an acceptable substitute type of paint for lacquer? How was it applied to the fenders & to the body?

        I'd appreciate any information to keep this car as close to original as possible, even though it will be a driver....

        Good afternoon everyone,

        After owning my 1928 Tudor for some twelve years I have finally decided I really should put some original style coach lines or pin stripping, whatever you call them, on her. I have mislaid my Model A book on the subject so if anyone has any pictures that they could post please, I would be most grateful. I need shots from all angles so that I have some idea what...
