Hi, ironbutt. i have a 56 flh as as well, and would like to see the pics.

i have had the most success just uploading the pictures as attachments, although there is a size restriction. you might need to fiddle with the pictures a bit to get them small enough for the forum to accept.

You should be able to get Champion Yellow from Antique Supply in Michigan.

I had a picture blown up to full size and my painter used that. See the earlier post about 56s to see the result.
