Any suggestions on finding the correct gold paint for the 1957 Golden Hawk that was applied to the center section of the hub cap?

Michael, New SI catalog, page 76, lower right hand corner. Product #801813. $14.50 per 12oz can. This paint will work best if a product called "Steelcote" is used for a primer. This is an "Industrial Use Only" product which I think I got from my auto paint supplier when I was in the body shop business. Can has a Jan 2001 date on it and I don't remember that far back. There is no manufacture name or address on the can either. May you can find it on the "net". But this is the product that will "stick" paint to glass.

Thank you Aero Blue. I don't know why I didn't think to look in the SI catalog. Those spay cans are handy! Thank you also for the tip on getting the paint to stick better.
