I have a Stanley no. 4 plane that I am restoring. I plan to use a spray-on engine paint for the body, but I don’t want to get spray paint inside some of the recessed areas of the frog.

Can anyone recommend a paint that I can brush onto the frog? Thanks.

Masking tape is your friend. Mask. Spray. Done.
