After doing a little research on this site, I've discovered that "tire black" can be substituted with semi-gloss black. and burnt iron can be any dark metallic mixed with silver, aluminum, bronze, or gold etc... to achieve any number of "metalized" looking colors. And I'm assuming that Wood Brown is a slightly different (lighter) shade of regular brown.
I know there are many techniques one can use to achieve a similar looking end results to the colors listed above. I'm more interested in knowing what the directions mean when they say "Metal Black". Do they mean something like a black chrome, or metallic black, or something completely different?
However, please feel free to add any of your techniques though. don't let me stop you. lol.
Oh... one more thing, the directions say that the modern equivalent to "Shelltone Ivory" (60's factory color I'm looking for) is Testors/MM Classic White, but I don't think they look very similar. Any suggestions on achieving something close to the shellton Ivory is appreciated. Can't seem to get an accurate link to the paint color chip from paintscratch.com but the internet color code is #E7E7EA
