Golden Cadmium Paint

Hey there...been following your site for a while. I think you're doing a great job on this one and can't wait until it's done. But, I suppose the journey is more than half the fun, eh?
I was browsing through your pics and saw the section where you restored the headlight assemblies. I know it's a little late now, but at least you haven't reinstalled them yet...

I was wondering if you've checked out Eastwood Supplies for restoration supplies. One thing they have that would have helped you is a paint system to "restore" cad plated items, like your headlight vacuum actuators and the like. They even have a short video on there. I found this back when I used to have a Triumph Spitfire that I restored and it had the same finish on the door strikers. You may want to check them out at:

Meanwhile, I'll continue to live vicariously through your project :)
