I'm helping a friend decorate her body shop. Looking for old/vintage paint cans, displays, signs, etc. Anything associated with auto body collision, repair and refinishing.

Pictures and prices appreciated.

Thanks.

That sounds like a good project. I had a bunch of different polish cloths in cans but a collector bought all of them. I will double check my garage and see if I can help.

This is what Jim, our coordinator collects, from what he has shown us, you have a long way to go to catch up to his collection.

Good luck,

I have about a dozen "body shop" related cans, like paint enamel, black top dressing, polishing cans, few signs, etc., but need more.

I'm in the collision industry but on the insurance side, so I've been collecting insurance/collision related artifacts whenever I can find.

Is this the kind of stuff you are looking for?

Always looking for grizzly gasoline stuff, or any Montana gas and oil stuff.

Lowe Brothers made mostly house paint and general purpose paints. They did make some paints specifically for carriages and autos.
