colorizing the Hutt

The first pic is from the Colourising the Hutt Facebook page which shows High Street in Lower Hutt in 1948: a 1936 Ford V8 coupe is on the right and a 1947 Chevrolet Fleetmaster in the centre.

A fair bit of time would have been needed to colorize the pics -- as we discovered in a basic and less sophisticated attempt of our own with the second pic showing Standard railcar RM 30 in Petone in 1938.  The biggest problem is not knowing exactly what the colours should be, although reasonable assumptions can be made.
