I was doing some browsing in the manuals section and saw where you gave the brochure for the plant tours.I was just wondering during your tenure with the company of the Ford tractor division in the late '50s how did they paint the FORD on the rear fenders (the embossed part). all the way up to the last row crops the 63 4000 witch yes were blue. And even on the earlier ones on the hooded part (the later 8-Ns up to '55 900's) along with fenders. Was it rolled on? A mask & sprayed? One man job or a team of employees? I now paint ours and my friends that we restore buy hand. Thankfully I'm artistic so that helps but I've always wondered how It was done originaly maybe you can solve the mystery?
