When using a chemical paint remover on the original 49N paint it takes multiple coats to remove all the paint compared to soy bean oil based alkyd paint.
Have removed the paint on most all the parts and have not detected any primer.
Based on my research, with the opinion, the original paint is a "Stoving Paint",
which was heat cured.
Stoving paint is still manufactured today.
Many manufactures are now opting to use heat cured stoving paint compared to heat cured powered coat, since the painting process can be performed in house rather than out sourced powder coating.
The stoiving paint process results in very durable finish similiar to power coat and is difficult to detect any difference.
