Default manilla brown

i picked up a few back issues of "the restorer" and noticed the "matching model A paint colors" . wondering if anyone has one with a "manilla brown" write up, i'll be looking for that issue. what ever volume,issue,month and year it may be.
i see the formulas are pretty much spelled, i'd like to learn more.
i plan to paint this cowl within the year.
also how much paint should be purchased . two or three coats ?
as well as anyones input on todays paints and the latest regulations.
i hear only this or that is available to purchase and release into the california atmosphere.


appreciated.

The listing from this site was taken from Technical Questions Column by Roger Kauffman in the Model "A" News July-August 2004 (Vol. 51 No.4)

WWW.TCPglobal.com has the original chips. I have Manila Brown acrylic urethane mixed by them for my 150B and the color matches in sunlight the color chip as published in the MAFCA paint book. Gar Williams
