  • A big day

    Got the body painted today. This is the lower color, Kewanee green. Next comes the upper color. I used Sherwin Williams 2nd dimension single stage. Perfect match to the paint and finish guide. A big thanks to Larry Shepard for the paint mix codes.

        Art The only issues i see is that your pics are to small. That is a beautiful looking job which deserves full sizers. You have a lot to be proud of!!

            X2, it's beautiful. I sure could do without the misery of prep. Wish my Model A was at that stage or beyond.

              I like the color of your car Tom remember a few years ago when the fad was to paint the car and put a flock on it so it had a finish like a pool table top.

                The first Studebaker I bought in 1969 was my 1950 Commander, and it has a trunk with that fuzzy flock on the floor and sides. I thought that might be standard on certain models, but many other Stude guys have said they never saw one like it.

                BTW, I was watch an old Johnny Carson rerun two nights ago, and Ed said his first car was a 1932 (or was it 1933) Studebaker Commander with a chauffer compartment and intercom.

                  Art,

                  Looks Beautiful!!!!. I like the 2nd dimension. It looks good, color sands good, and buffs out well now and 10 years from now.
                  Can't wait to see it finished!

                  Hope to see you at Nokomis.

                                by Art Ebeling
                                I am about to put the hood on the Victoria. For some reason it just never got painted till now. It's going to be time to call JB about striping and Mrs. Lucky is giving me the look about the Apple Green. Although it would not be my first choice it is the only stripe for the Elkpoint/Kewanee colors. You do see a lot of way too lime tinted Apple Green wheels which are too bright. I hope the correct...

                                Black paint
                                by carolinamudwalker
                                I need to paint the panels just above the running boards. The fenders have been painted with a base coat/clear coat. My problem is I don't want to buy a gallon of paint. I think it was Tom W. that recommended a very black paint from one of the auto parts stores but I could not find that thread. I prefer a paint with a hardener for spraying. Any suggestions?

                                Single stage vs. base coat/clear coat
                                by Logan
                                I’ve read on this forum several times about how people don’t like the “base/clear” look. And that the single stage urethane is a more “correct” appearance. But as a professional painter I’ve never really understood the argument. Base clear is a much simpler system to make repairs on, the only advantage in my opinion to single stage is it’s cheaper to buy a one step system than a two...
