Next on the agenda was the paint stripe on the spring. Our originals had a single gold stripe that was reproduced on the new spring. Testors Paints gave us a shade of gold that was quite close to the original. Note the Inline Tube brake lines in the background. The brake lines are held on with clips that were originally a light phosphate color. We got as close as we could by spraying a coat of flat black, and then covering that with Rust-Oleum gray primer. The bolts were dark phosphate, so for them we used some Martin Senour flat black.
