This month I have decided to go in a different direction. I would like all members with auto enamel advertising to post their items. Any company will be accepted. Many paint companies such as BPS, Martin Senour, Dupont, ect. made paints for automobiles. Many people brush painted their cars at their home to give them a fresh look. You could walk down to your local hardware store buy house paint and auto paint. Many of these companies integrated auto paints in with their house paint ad's. Seeing Jim's site dedicated to auto paint is what sparked my interest in old auto body related advertising. Everyone's contributions are much appreciated. Lets see what's out there!!

Great stuff so far! Love the graphics on the labels, signs and brochures. Here are some of my half pint auto paint cans. Back in the day when people painted their own cars, there were lots of brands, like Effecto, Steelcote, KoteAKar, Nu-Enamel, Nu Back, Armor Coat and Retardo.

I brush painted a 1951 Packard. Came out way better than I expected. Good quality brush and right thinner helped.
The older it got and the more it got washed and waxed , the better it looked.

The paint section had some serious non-politically correct stuff. From Jim's "Retardo" paint to the Chi-Namel Wood Varnish. Stuff you couldn't market today for sure.
