Why do you think I'm mostly a lurker on this thread

Okay I got one!

Prior to the introduction of Lacquer paint, most of the worlds production auto manufactures used a product that consisted of: An asphaltic base dissolved in naphtha or turpentine, sometimes with other varnish ingredients, such as linseed oil. What was the name of this product, color and what was the term that was used for applying it?

Brian will probably get this one too.LOL He's on the other side of the continent but I swear I think he has hacked my computer.

The one problem I have with it being called "Japan Black" is it goes against what I was told in that black is a bad luck color in the Japanese culture. There was never a black Japanese car for YEARS. Back in the seventies I painted a couple of brand new Dodge colts (Made in Japan) black because they didn't make them.

But that is just what I was told so it may not be true.

Brian Another name was Brunswick Black, but the most common name was Japan, or Japan black, I have no idea why, yet, I don't even think Japan has anything to do with it, The black color comes from the asphalt base, That color was used because it only took 48 hours to dry, other colors could be made but they took two weeks to dry, or up to two weeks.

Bob

It is also called Pontypool japan, it is a process of japanning with the use of oil varnish and heat which is credited to Thomas Allgood of Pontypool South Wales in the 17th century.

I have 25 deer waiting to be fed in the backyard, so this one will be short and easy.

Which auto maker introduced synchromesh transmission and in what year?

I will post a picture in the morning, I don't know how many will be there at once. Sometimes they come in groups and hang around other times they will leave in groups of 4 or 5. On warmer days they will lay down out there and spend all day, they watch us watch them. When the feeders run out they come right up to the walkout to let us know they need more corn, then they stand in the yard and wait until we put corn in the feeders.
I also have Turkeys but they get spooked pretty easy. So we will wait until we get some out there, they are all does and fawns. The big bucks come in late, some of the smaller bucks come up to the window after dark, but not the big ones. The does will fight stand on their back feet and just whack away with their fronts.

Bob

Brian 1st off don't hang fish out, you won't get any.

The answer, you are half way there, according to the book I get these question from. oh what the hell, you only missed it by a year, by this book or you nailed it by Google.

I have 1928. Cadillac.

Our friend Dave 57210 sent a pm with 1928 also but It could of been a end of year thing.

By the way our thoughts go out to Dave,has he is about to go under the knife, I have had that operation 7 times, they cut across the muscles and when you are done, and they get you up, let me tell you the pillow cannot be pulled against your stomach hard enough. And women give birth this way all the time, hats off to them.

Brian the floor is yours.

GET WELL DAVE. Bob

Chris Here are some pictures from my front room, the feeders is about 30' away from the house. I have had as many as 35-40 deer back there at once back there. One thing about deer they never call to tell you they are coming, or how many for dinner.

Last winter I went through 2 tons of corn, so far this winter I have gone through about 1 ton.

It wouldn't upload more than 4 pictures, you can see how thick the woods are, I will do another post with my shop.
