I don't know why but all these goat pictures are freaking me out.
What are they doing ? Paint stripping bad production paint ?
^^Don't quote me, but I think it might be a very early form of spraying - more splurging. The excess just runs off back down those troughs and gets recycled. Probably black japan lacquer - the only colour you could have because it was the fastest drying.
Edit: I found mention of it here.. It's called paint flowing.

I like this one.
Does anybody else think he's running '51 windsplits on his 50?
Kind of a neat look, I thought about it for mine, but ultimately went back to the big '51 taillights with the windsplits.
Here's your razor blades, there's the traffic......have fun...
Good old fashioned parenting.

I don't recognize what kind of car this is. Dodge Brothers painted their cars like this, two guys with what looks like garden hoses from each side. The excess ran back into a vat that was under the car. They used no primer and wiped the car down with gasoline before starting. Two coats, run through an oven, then sanded and a finish coat and back through the oven. Our club has a factory video that shows this from around 1915-1920. I have seen quite a few teens DBs with original paint.
Site where I take it said it comes from :
Henry Ford Collection,
March 30, 1915.
