     It seems to me that someone on this list has a web site 
with the formulas for all the Hallicrafters colors on it. If 
so you may be able to get paint made up for you via mail 
     I suspect covering the old paint with masking tape 
would work but I am not sure how good it would look.
     Is the original paint scratched or scraped off or just 
dirty or stained? If dirty there may be a way of saving it.
