Thanks for your suggestion on painting my 67 back to the original color. I'm sure the present coat is good enough to just use 600 grit. and you gave me the answer (if not the courage) I was hoping for. This is especially true now as I am knee deep in going to bare metal on my SVO. Since the 67 is next for paint, I really wasn't looking forward to the same intensive prep work. Thank you much!

I definitely agree! Clearwater Aqua Metallic is a cool color from what I can see of the swatches, but I don't think the swatches come close to the real thing. The white it was painted was a very good job and even if the condition of the car demands a back to original restoration as far as colors and configurations go, I don't want to take it all the way to the metal to redo the paint. Plus I don't want to paint it "Resale Red" because it seems too many do that now days which is okay, it's just not me.

Just a natural born lazy man. If the cars dead straight and has a good foundation, why try to build a new foundation and make it straight again. When you shoot the primer, just take the time to do a guide coat and block it out once more to insure it's there. Then there's nothing left but the fun part, shooting the color. Good luck, I wish I was there right now,,,,I'm still welding patches here and there.
