That's a really nice looking paint job from the pic.  Come down to Ky and paint mine now.

I've got to replace the quarter and patch the other first.

Thanks . All that's left now us to color sand it twice . Once with 1200 then 1500 . " argh will the sanding ever end?" . Also I think the transmission leak I had has stopped , changed over the speedometer fitting in the tranny so fingers crossed it won't have a little accident on my garage floor .
I'm really pleased with the color . Thought it was going to be a tad lighter looking at it in the can but glad it wasn't Very Happy

Around here, outdoor storage is at least $75-$100/mo. Multiplied by 10 yrs...yeah, I'd say he's over-payed for this! Hate to say it, but there doesn't appear to be much left as a foundation to work with.

Here are a few pics of the car outside in the sun so you can get a better idea of the color. The left side is sanded in 1200 . Had to turn it round to get it in the garage to do the right side . So I'm about a quarter way done with the color sanding

Thanks guys . Mali I'm sanding the clear coat , it goes on straight after the paint . There's two coats of clear but I still have to be real careful not to burn through when sanding

I've been working on it most days after work and weekends for the last few weeks . I used to do this kind of work for a job so that helped .

Just curious- How many color coats did you end up using & what brand-name? I'm looking for a good quality material for color. Thanks.

I bought a gallon of paint at first then two more quarts just in case we ran out half way through shooting it . Used all but a small amount on the car . Kept a little back for the rear filler panel I haven't got yet and for any touch ups .
Can't remember the paint brand but we've got paint from napa for years with no problems and are helpful I'm finding the color you want . Mine is a factory color so was fairly easy to get right .

Huge difference between the before and after shots in a short amount of time. Excellent work!

Once I'd made the decision to paint it there was no stopping me . No way was my car going to be one of those cars that sat in a paint shop for months and years like where I used to work . I want to get mine done and drive the Turd out of it

Hey yea that is a nice color on that car . Like i said before I was blessed with a very straight body to start with . The first pics make the car look really rough but it was all just surface rust . There was no rust holes at all so this gave us a really good head start

Kinda sorta . They are real small luckily and both on the back of the hood . Not going to worry about them to much . It's way to much time and work to mask the whole car off and shoot the hood again
