    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?

  • #2
    AACA does not deduct points for the type of paint. They do deduct for any imperfections

      AACA is commonly called "1 Knee judging" Does it look good, we won't go lower than 1 knee to look at the car... Nice paint...= Full points!! Now MARC & MAFCA definitely will....

    I know a 68C that got its AACA junior with a may things not close to correct. Hardware store bolts for top pivots, visible inner doors with rust, missing a top part... I did not want to risk offending the and sort of stopped looking. I later gave him a list of stuff to correct. Hibernia called me to ask how to fix them.

      Usually they find them in the long run going for the senior.

        My AACA experiences have been very favorable, and the cars are well judged according to their guidelines.

        Yes we all have stories

          Thanks for the input. I am restoring a 1917 American LaFrance fire engine and was curious about AACA judging.

            Ed,

            AACA has a forum broken down into many areas. One is for judging questions...

            Here are the judging guidlines PDF

                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?

                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...

                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...

                I know in the past I seen a post that had reference to a PPG or DuPont black paint that was very close to what the appearance of what Ford used. After much searching on the dark side I could not find it. Can someone Please post the brand and paint code number. Thanks Rod

                Bumper Clamp Paint
                by Norm
                I have contacted several suppliers about bumper clamp paint ( don't want decals ) and it appears that no one is carring it anymore . I tried to have a paint store match the chip in the Paint and Refinish Guide but the color turned out gray . Anyone have any ideas? Thanks , Norm

                Preventing paint chipping when tightening screws
                by wrndln
                I am wondering if using some valve grinding compound under the heads when tightening screws like open vehicle stanchion screws, molding screws for example would help or prevent the paint from chipping. A little compound could be applied under the head and then tighten the screw loosely and unscrewed it several times to "grind" some of the paint away. I had an unfortunate experience when...

                match paint to chips
                by Jim Mason
                To improve the ease of matching color of paint to the mafca paint guide...I punch a hole in the chip. this remove the deferences caused by lighting and surrounding colors. the second pic shows nigara blue dark from the ditzler chips compared to the mafca nigara blue light. as always the color temperature of your computer makes it impossible to show 'correct' colors

                Painting rear axle.
                by Curly
                The paint has largely worn off my rear axle and pumpkin. It’s very clean and zero rust. I want to keep it this way.
                Im looking for suggestions on how to repaint it correctly.
                Its on lift.
                Drain and fill plugs are removed.

                Can I now thoroughly degrease then tape off and paint with POR from rattle can?

                do I need to prime?
                is there a better paint...
