X2 on Krylon32 and his adapter parts. Reasonable prices, quality parts and a knowledgeable vendor. What's not to like.

Re: New distributor from Charlie ny

I think it is, or at least can be. Only 2 owners since early 1960's...one from 64-90, the second from 90-18. Old lacquer and same era pin striping are a nice feature. Thanks.
