  • judging Standards Paint Codes

    Hello all !!! i am real close to putting various engine parts back on Clyde. What started as a tune up 2 months ago, has now grown. I think i have the bug also. But in reading the Judging Standards book it makes referance to 2 paimt codes B- Black and R-Raven, now on doing some research on the internet i think R-Raven would be gloss black?????, so what is B-Black????? satin????

            The last set of codes i posted was from the undercarriage section. I think your question is answered. bst, bsg, bg
            Those are the blacks that were used
            Raven is gun metal blue like the spark plug bases the Jim posted

            Black is Black…Along with Jim’s Question below
            by Steve Plucker
            About 12-14 years ago, and can not remember which version of the RG’s I used, but I went through the Standards and noted, I think, about 45 or so different “sayings” about the color BLACK.

            I had no idea Ford used that many versions of BLACK during the Model A era.

            In other words in certain spots the Standards say for instance that a part was painted “BLACK”. Well...

            by Steve Plucker
            In Section 1 (Engine Compartment) and Section 4 (Undercarriage) of the Standards, the paint schemes per part are spelled out.
            Now we go to Area 7 (Brake System) and very little is told about the individual brake parts being a specific "black" color.
            Can you please tell me what parts are:
            1. Satin Black
            2. Semi-gloss Black
            3. Gloss Black
            I just can not...

            Correct black paint for gen., starter, oil pan, etc.?
            by smittykid
            The engine is out of my 29 Tudor being rebuilt by the folks out in Skokie, Il. While everything is off the engine-I figured now would be the time to paint the black stuff. Would Rustoleum gloss black be close? I'm not really going for a high point show car, but since everything is off and relatively easy to paint-I would like to get it close. Obviously, Rustoleum paint is readily available. ...

            Japan Black
            by Mike V. Florida
            There are a few items on the A that were protected by the process called Japan Black or Japanning. The Guidelines say the parts were dull but from what I have read and seen about the process, the results were far from dull.

            So here are the questions, has anyone used the process? How glossy did it come out? Did you have it judged and what was the point result?

            Here is a formula...

            Axle part paint sheens
            by 1930murray
            What black paint sheen should the spring clamps be? (I am referring to the c-shaped clamp that clips into and around the middle leaf of each pack)

            What black paint sheen should the spring hanger (shackle) be?

            what black paint sheen should the hanger bars be?

            I am wondering why these items are not listed on sheet 4-22 in the judging standards. Are these components...

            Carburetor paint - Semi gloss black.
            by Jwmckenzie
            Looking for real life experience painting carbs with semi-gloss black.

            Snyder's sells a Seymore Hi-Tech Lacquer for this purpose, but the data sheet says it is not resistant to gas.

            Search on this interweb thingie, suggests I need an epoxy or urethane.

            Torque tube finish
            by Great Lakes Greg
            The judging standards state that the torque tube could have an "irregular finish". The one I am working on looks like rust pits under paint. Is it wishful thinking that this is the irregular finish described? It would take a lot of high build primer to make a smooth surface.

            by SeaSlugs
            So im getting a set of floor boards done - dovetailed wood plank style, all holes cut for AA with dual high pedals, holes drilled for support straps - went to old ace hardware for #12x3/4 screws with slotted head, but unsure of what to use to stain or paint them. I tested on the upper board near the pedals with black minwax polystain. Soaked in nicely to the end grain and will preserve it forever...
