I used three different blues and an oxide red to match as close as possible. I'll add patina later once dry and blend the two areas.
I know I know... it doesn't say "Lindy". The same cigar tank was used on both but I haven't yet the will to destroy the original iver paint & logo. Still holding out for an alternate before I repaint this one in Lindy colors.
Also, just to be clear, this is not a modified Iver Johnson tank adapted to my Shelby frame. It is an original Iver tank repaired to original dimensions. It had been butchered by someone somewhere along its history.
These particular Iver cigar tanks are, to my knowledge, the same tanks used on the Shelby Lindy and Whippet in 1928.
if anyone is looking for an original paint (sorta') Iver Johnson cigar tank, this one may be available if I can locate another that I will feel less badly repainting in "Lindy" colors and graphics (like a non-og paint one)
Excellent Job---You`re getting Spooky with your patina... A good layer of natural dust and you won`t be able to find the repairs yourself... Your eyes and hands work very well together, that`s the trick...--- God Bless,---Cowboy
