painted a car this past weekend. the color is kinda weird, but that's what this car was originally. Pete M. and I did the work on it and sprayed it. We used Concept PPG single stage which I like. Makes the paint look a lot like the original enamel. Only thing I don't like is that when you are watersanding, you never know how far you've gone. At least with clearcoat as long as it's milky white stuff you watersand you're ok.

Go here for pics

Is it my eyes or is that somewhere between Mustard and Lime. Weird is right. Looks good though.

What kinda paint was it, urethane (I KNOW thats spelled wrong!)? I am debating between that and bc/cc to replace my crumby old enamel paint.

I can't wait to get to that point. DId you guys use box fans and furnace filters for your booth ventilation? I'm forced to shoot in my basement under the house, so I've been considering different temporary booth options.

Oh yea, and the paint job looks slick regardless of the color.

Interesting. Know anything about urethane paint? Previous owner has it on my car and said it needed to be "glazed" again. (only done once at the shop-paint still quite new 1 year-200 miles out of garage) He also tells me not to put wax on it????
