You can get the paint from Bill Hirsch, or Terrill Machine. They are the ones with the vertical ads in Hemmings. Bill advertises in display ads in the front, usually under services offered. It is the "Bell Telephone" olive green that is correct. This paint goes on well, even with a brush on the cast iron. Hirsch also has it in spray bombs. Good luck.
