Hey, just talking around and came across some different choices .. and wanted to know what the VMF crew thinks!

Ok, I have ppl asking whether I want base/clear or enamel paint? Which is best for a classic stang? Also, are there other alternatives out there which provide better protection (I heard once of this paint where you could "key" it and still not scratch it) ....

this depends on your intentions. Are you going for an original look or custom show entry. A daily driver or will it be used to haul hay bales around? what are you budgeted for?

I want a nice looking daily driver ... and to have the paint look nice and shiney + have that "deep" look to it.

Go with basecoat/clearcoat. Enamel won't give you that deep look without lots of hand rubbing and multiple coats. It will be shiny, but not deep or glossy. The difference in cost should be negligible, since the bulk of the cost is in the labor, not the materials.

Your best for your money would be base coat/clear coat With the clear on there the uv rays won't affect the colour. Enamals tend to go chalky and fade after time.
