69NovaYenko added a topic in Model Building Questions and AnswersNewbie: Food Dehydrators & Paint Dryers Question
My Nesco food dehydrator yesterday. Since I`m on vacation this morning was spent opening up the trays so for parts can set inside.
I read the 2003 post of “Food Dehydrators & Paint Dryers” and was able to gleaned a lot of valid info. However, what should I hold the freshly painted body on? In the post there were several comments alluding to tensioned metal stands could cause body warpage. The post never confirmed or denied the statement. So, first off is this true or false? And, if this is true what does one set a freshly paint wet body on?

My issue is the glue (most likely tube type glue) is tenaciously resisting any attempts to get it to release the windshield from the body. This is the older style of glass that has two clear strips that attach to the roof interior and two locating post on the underside of the truck deck. I do not wish to damage the glass nor damage the body. The bond appears to be incredibly strong after all these years. Any and all suggestions are welcomed. .

Recently, I stumbled upon PaintRef.com. If you are looking for an "ERA CORRECT" automotive paint info for your car/truck build this is the go to site. It shows the model, year and paint codes from 1922 to present. The sites database not only shows scanned in paint chip pages from automotive manufacturer brochures (23,225 pages view-able online) it links the paint chip to the automotive paint manufacturer (PPG/ Dupont/ BASF/ Sherwin Williams etc) names and codes they used for the color.
Auto manufacturers covered include:
Acura Alfa-Romeo AMC Appliance Aston Martin Auburn Audi Austin Autobianchi Autocar Bentley Bertone BMC BMW Bricklin Brockway Buick Cadillac Chevrolet Chrysler Citroen Crosley Dacia Daewoo Daihatsu Datsun Delorean DeSoto Diamond T Dodge Eagle Federal Ferrari Fiat Fleet Ford Fruehauf Geo GM GMC Graham Harley Davidson Highway Hino Honda Hudson Hummer Hupmobile Hyundai Indian Infiniti Innocenti Iso Isuzu Jaguar Jeep Jensen Kaiser Kentucky Kia Lada Laforza Lamborghini Land Rover Lexus Lincoln Lotus Mack Mahindra Maruti Maserati Mazda Mercedes Mercury MG Military Mini Mitsubishi Morris Moskvich Nash Nissan Oldsmobile Opel Packard Pininfarina Plymouth Pontiac Porsche Rambler Range Rover Renault Reo Rolls Royce Rootes Ryder Saab Saturn Seat Skoda Smart SsangYong Studebaker Subaru Suzuki Talbot Tesla Toyota Triumph UMM Vauxhall Vector Vespa Volkswagen Volvo White Willys Yamaha Yugo
Thought it might be useful to others so I`m posting the link.
If there is enough interest maybe this post will be pinned as a reference source.
