painting NP reefers

Tony Thompson

I have a completed Norwest kit for a NP 90000-90999 series reefer, and the body is painted. I have been hand-painting the door hinges, ladders, etc. black. But I can't find the painting directions from the kit, and don't know what color the kick plate under the door should be. My guess would be BCR, but might it be black? Any help appreciated.
