  • Fan blade paint

    The fan blade I got from SI is black and I would like to paint it orange as the original. Is the Chevy engine orange a pretty good match?

    Thanks

    It's close enough that nobody will ever notice, but it's a little too yellow and not enough red.

      Purdy engine compartment..now there is a shot of the drain hose on the cowl everyone was looking for a picture of a couple weeks ago. Two for one helper shot!

        That drain hose stands out better on the white cars than some of the others.

          All the others had the air cleaner on and the pics were from the front. That's a great shot for whomever was looking for it. Can't remember who was trying to replace it and needed to see a good one, though. A search may not find it if it had been in another thread header, I'll try.

            I was the one looking for a picture of a drain hose and fittings for a 62. This appears to be a 63. Since that time I have decided I would just make something to fit.

              Here is 'dark chevy orange'
              As Mike implies here...there are TWO "Chevy Oranges". An early and a late. Most FLAPS carry both. Make sure you get the darker of the two.

                I think that the Chrysler Orange may be a better match. It may be the same as the darker Chevy color.

                Here is a color chart:

                DE1622 is what I have used. It matched my fan color.

                    JI Case "Flambeau Red" tractor paint available from TSC or Valspar is the exact correct color for studebakers fans! It's just the right mix of orange and red....

                    If you want some Dan, I can outright give you a pint of the paint if you pay for shipping and I can find a can.

                      I have a friend with a 1964 Daytona, perhaps Omaha Orange.

                      He claims it was a factory color in 1964 to get rid of all the surplus fan paint.[8D]

                        Thanks for all the tips and ideas. 54-61-61, we have a TSC near me, I actually was just there Fri. getting part washer solvent. I will stop by there later this week to see if they have the JI Case paint! Thanks for the offer to send a can too.
