        Art, what type of paint did you use? Base coat/clear coat, single stage, water base?


        • #5
          Ed, I used Sherwin Williams 2nd Dimension single stage. It was more about getting a perfect match to the chips in the Paint and Finish Guide than anything else. I tried PPG, Dupont, and Standox and could not get a color that wasn't too army green. Larry Shepard had this Sherwin Williams formula and gave great reviews of the product, and he was right. It goes on like glass and is harder than Chinese arithmetic when dry.

              I have done a lot of shooting and I am pleased to say that is a million dollar paint and buffing job, tons and tons of work but you will never regret it.

                      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.

                      High school class builds a 1930 roadster
                      by Logan
                      I’ve already posted about this, but I’m starting over because the last thread got a little off topic. I am a high school auto body teacher for a local school district here in Texas. In August we started the paint and body work on a 1930 roadster for a local club member. The car (named Charlie) is a super nice roadster that’s been in storage, dismantled, since 1965. We started by blasting, etch...

                      Here is a question for the fine point judges out there. Dose the AACA deduct points for base coat clear coat paint vs. single stage paint?

                      Can someone recommend a cadium plating service and post some pictures of the finished product?...

                      As some may recall, I brought a '29 gas tank to Brent's party back in April. It is now being painted.

                      I say "being" since I simply don't trust my own abilities to lay down a decent finish coat of paint. So I took it to a local paint and body shop for them to spray for me. Yes, I know I need to develop my own skills, but since I am not restoring a car (don't have something to...

                      Paint break question
                      by Art Ebeling
                      What is the correct way to apply the secondary color on a Victoria? Do you wrap the upper color around the back of the doors and the upper part of the door jamb or do you just spray the outside of the doors allowing a drift of secondary color into the jamb as in the paint and refinish guide? can somebody post some pictures of theirs?...

                      I have colorsanded a couple model A bodies and a set of fenders before. I am about ready to colorsand the set of fenders and splash aprons for my 29 phaeton. I am not sure I am doing it correctly or the best or most efficient way. The bodies and fenders I colorsanded turned out well, but I broke through the top coat on a couple places on the outer parts of the doors. I am sure it is that I didn't...

                      New Paint
                      by carolinamudwalker
                      When I was young I bought a new white p/u truck. An older gentleman told me to get a cement block & throw it as hard as I could in the bed of the truck. What does this have to do with a model A? Well I just installed my newly painted front fenders very carefully wearing new cotton gloves. When finished I tripped over the creeper that was stored vertically against the wall. Yep, it gouged that...

                      Too much catalyst
                      by BillLee/Chandler, TX
                      What happens if you use too much catalyst when preparing some urethane paint? How does the paint react? How does it spray? Flow out?

                      Under Fender Care
                      by Paul
                      The season of salt is coming up. Before putting your A's away (I assume everyone has two), how do groom with stuck on tar, sand and the accasional paint chip under the fenders?

                      I wash with soap and water then wipe down with karasen. The rag instantly becomes gritty and it feels like I am scratching the hell out of it. Next I use soap and water let it dry, touch up spots with Rust-Oleum...
