I just use black engine block spray paint. Works great. Can get it at auto stores.

Paint technology is a wee bit more advanced nowadays than it was when Stanley bought the Bailey patents.

+1 All of my planes that had significant loss of the original Japanning got a few coats of Duplicolor. It isn’t orignal but you’d never know by looking at it. I give some detail on how I go about it in this blog post.
