  • Acrylic Lacquer tinting

    Any suggested vendors that can tint some quarts of newer acrylic lacquer based on samples provided ?
    Thanks.

    plyfor,

    TCI in California and Hibernia Restorations in NJ sell PPG lacquer. I've heard PPG lacquer can still be purchased in Michigan. That assumes they will sell you tints, some won't.

    Unless you are standing there watching, how will the vendor know exactly what you want ?

    Better option would be getting the formula yourself,and determining the tints needed to move the color where you want.

    Next thing, tinting is not like making Grandma's apple pie, where a little 'extra' won't hurt. Some tints are strong enough to move a color beyond what you want very quickly. Even more difficult to move a color back.

    Good Luck....

      Not Model A Related But Still "SAFE"
      by Leo
      This is not regarding Model A's but it may help somebody trying to remove one layer of brushed on paint from a car body. Sad story, my Dad had a floor safe in his business which was about 3 feet by 3 feet high, steel walls with concrete in between, very heavy. It had the name of the local bank in gold leaf on the door, probably who owned it originally. It was not pristine, it was rough and used,...

      Seeking Advice: Paint and Rust Issues
      by cpf240
      My father bought this '29 Special Coupe back in '78. It was in typical barn find condition. At that time, a restoration was started, but never finished. From '80 or so onward, it sat in two different garages, one in Santa Monica, and then sat outside under a tarp in Costa Mesa for several years. So, it has had some salt air exposure.

      My father didn't do the work himself, but my grandfather...

      Modified?

      I've been following cars all my life. Haven't really had anything too exciting. I had a 53 Ford Truck with a later 312 Y block for a while. I was young and needed money though. I had traded my 1971 Dodge Van for it (yep, that era). I loved that van, slant six... My first car was a 64 Comet, 289 4 bbl. 4 speed with what I think was a factory Hurst shifter. My first car and first stick. It had a leaking...

      Picking up where Dad left off
      by Brent
      So, I've gotten the sheet metal including the doors, cowl, hood, etc. fitting pretty well. In general, I believe the sheet metal is in pretty good shape. Part of the car has been painted black lacquer and part of it is in spotty primer and filler...this was done probably 20 years ago by my dad. As I pick up the body work again, I was hoping for some help with my plan of attack.

      First,...

      More on prep for painting using phosphoric acid such as Ospho with pic
      by tbirdtbird
      I am forever promoting using this prep for freshly blasted metal or otherwise cleaned.
      This is a hood from the M5 I am working on. Like all the other sheet metal, it was water blasted a year ago. The water blasters put in a special chemical to stop it from flash rusting, but that stuff only lasts a day or two.

      Few people are prepared to prime their sheet metal immediately, esp since...

      Another Painting Question
      by DaWizard
      Sitting here reading about the paint job that has been posted, it occurred to me that I don't know what was done before me, I am wondering.

      I have read that any silicone lubricant can't be successfully painted over, just what do I do in the areas, hinges, window frames, etc that could have been lubricated by a silicone type lube?

      Is there any way short of stripped down to

      Some expert advice please
      by Mikey
      I'm new to this forums thing and even newer to the Model A hobby (obsession). My father in law has his first car, a 29 roadster that he also learned how to drive in, he also has a 31 deluxe roadster that has been in in the barn since 64 ish that is in hundreds of parts. Do to personal and financial reasons he needed to unload the 31. To help him out, I found a buyer but when it came time, he would...
