Default radiator overflow tank completely restored

Hi all . Here is my original MK II Carrier overflow tank completely restored , painted and ready to be installed . Thank-you Super Dave for the core .
Used some leftover Olive Drab paint for now. Speaking of paint here is another $ 1 M question : What colour should a 1944 Canadian No 2 MII * Carrier should be ? What’s the nearest modern equivalent ? Were there colour variations ? So many questions ..

Factory colour would be a matt (really matt) olive drab. Similar to the standard American 34087 something but a little greener.

Default Fuel tank restoration

Got my fuel tank back from ACME radiator.

They restored it completely inside and out.

They use a white coating inside and gray outside .

I painted the outside OD Green.

It should last for years.

Picture of a fuel sender.

Where can i get a working fuel sender with float for the top of the tank please ?

I have read Dave Schindle , Rob Love and Mike Gurr's comments of Feb 19.

I have perused Mac's . I think i have found something.

Cheers.

Bob

The left side tank looks swell!

Is it time to sort out the front and rear horizontal pressure vent assemblies and their connectors to the specific front and rear vertical pressure vent lines, along with the vertical lines hull clip?
