If you dont mind me asking, what color code did you use for that paint? Ive been hunting forever trying to find it. It looks good.
Heres my R-110 Cummins Swap, with the incorrect orange on the cab.

I Googled International Harvester paint colors for 1951 and I got this. https://oldinternationaltrucks.com/colour-charts/

Re: Hood alignment

Hey Doogybot, pardon the curiosity but in your pictures I noticed 3 holes just above and outboard of each headlight. The holes are symmetrical on either side. Can you tell me what they're for?

Re: Hood alignment

I got the paint mixed at endura paints in Edmonton Alberta.
I was told it's the same type of paint that they used back in the day. A rubberized compound
