Side spears & hood emblem red paint

I am going to have the side spears and hood emblem re-chromed. I will need to repaint the red areas. Rather than buy several cans of various red paint does anyone know of a good match to the origional?

Is there a trick to repainting them?

Thanks

The only red paint that should be used is FORD RED! Most auto parts store's carry it. I know NAPA does. Not engine paint.

Hey Russ:

Yeah Ford red is pretty easy to find, I got it at the local hardware store. You will need to scuff the painted areas so the paint will stick. I used 0000 fine steel wool, on mine, and then I washed it down with No Rinse TSP but it rinsed it anyway. then wiped it with laquer thinner . Another good idea is after you have it masked and ready to paint, hit it with a few light coats, of "Self Etching Primer" then you can lay down your Ford Red. I clear coated mine after it was done, and it looks awesome. The red paint alone will fade and peel within a year in warm climates, that is why I etched it and cleared it. It looks like new this time and has lasted for a few years so far.

You could cheat and use vinyl in the color of your choice. No issues with adhesion, no pesky masking worries and fade resistant.

Thanks, didn't know ford had their own red paint, blue yes. It will cost me $110 to re-chrome the hood emblem and $225 for each side spear. I went ahead this the front emblem but will look for spears in better shape to re-chrome.

Ford red who wudda thunk

Just wanted you guys to know that your long-past help is still helping people today! My wife and I are just getting started on her "new" 2wd `67 crew cab F250. Just got a pair of, pretty good hood emblems and wanted info. on painting them. I've seen a few "restored" ones out there that just didn't look like the right color red. Thanx again.

You can buy the hood emblem from Dennis Carpenter for $50-60 bucks.

nope

I wish. Not sure what your seeing but I was referring to 67 FORD F250 hood side emblems. Not a big demand for the one-year emblem so no one reprkduces them. They do make the 68 & up ones with DOT reflectors, but not for near that price. Thanks though.

In case you haven't noticed, you're referring to 1967 emblems in the 1961/66 forum.

Oops, my bad. That explains it. Sorry, thanx. New to this, but from what I've read, it's a pleasure communicating with you NumberDummy. Thanx for all the help. Switching back to where I belong.

Yeah sorry, I was referring to a hood emblem from 1961-1966, and the reason I said $50-$60 dollars, is because I didn't know if you needed the gear and lightning or the V-8.

Don't bother as they won't last before the chrome pits.

That's what I've heard to about the chrome finish don't last long. 50 years later and the originals still outlast the new repro poop
