Hi Dave,

Welcome to chevy talk. Does you Corvair have the steering wheel on the wrong side?

Anyhow, the paint code 940 is Satin Silver. I have a couple of the paint manufacturer's number if you want them. I don't know how much good they'll do you since they are a hundred years old, but I've got 'em.

Tire pressures are critical on these cars so besure and keep them right or you might find yourself wrapped around a tree somewhere. They should be somewhere around 18 psi for the front and 30 psi for the rear. The exact pressures aren't particularly important but the differential between front and rear is. Here's an explanation on my website.

You don't happen to have a website where a fellow could have a look at all your stuff, do you?
