        Norm here is some more info that Jimbo sent me.!!!!


        Full title, "One Shot Lettering Enamel, #158 Dark Blue"

        A 1/4 pint is enough.

        Purchase on line try Eastwoods Restoration Supplies, some online auto body supply dealers, 'Dick Blick Art Supplies', & 'Suder's Art Store'.

        Support the clamp face up, stir the paint and apply directly from the can, no thinners, using a small artist's brush. Puddle the paint so it will flow out not leaving brush strokes & dry over night.

        Mistakes can be washed off with mineral spirits and try again.

        Ford sprayed the clamps thru a mask using lacquer paint. The results were translucent with a soft edge. That's another lesson.

          I have the mask for spray painting the large and small bumper clamps . It does leave a soft edge as original . I bought it from Will Cronkite a few years ago . I don't know if he has any more . See you in Branson , Norm

            Any pictures of the mask?
            How is it held in place?

              I will try to attach a photo . This is my first try at adding a photo to a reply . Here goes . I used a piece of double side tape to hold in place . Norm I believe these were laser cut by Will
