Re: Correct carriage black

Hi there , I would think it is not the color that you are concerned with but the texture? Black is black however the type of paint systems available to us today do not give the same look as when the car was new. One of my 1912 cars,the sales brochure quotes 13 coats of lead paint applied in steam he...
