CA Black Plate Resto Question

Can someone tell what the correct paint colors would be to restore a California black plate? Any idea on where to buy the paint?

Thanks,

I just had www.tagdr.com do my plates and they did a great job for reasonable cost. Chek them out.

Dang- I just checked out tagdr.com, and they've got an 8-10 week turnaround time. I guess there's quite a market for plate restoration if they're that busy.

I have restored some Illinois plates and bought my paint (laquer) from my local auto paint store. I had some plates with reasonable color left on them to match to the fleet color chart. Illinois also has a list availble with every color combo from the first issue
(1911?) to present day. Hope this helps
