Vette(s): 1982 C3 Collectors Edition 44000 miles, sat in the sun most of it's life, My wife purchased it for me for fathers day in 2007 from her girl friend that had it for 19 years. It is on the road again. I'm retired but it is now my daily driver.
Thanks a lot. I for one would like to see some videos on how to prepare a Corvette for painting.
When you make your video please provide enough information on the tools you use so that similar items can be obtained. If you need help posting them give a shout-out. There may be someone close that can help you make it or post it.
The comments you provided are just what I was looking for and I think others would also.
The comment you made about Lacquer not lasting and the extra work required to remove it when you next paint. The issue I have is I have no idea on what type of paint was used on the last paint job. There was some minor body work done and the owner went from the CE colors to silver with black paint where the brown fader areas were.
From what I have read Urethane paint would be a good choice because it is suppose to be able to be put over any type of finish.
Besides the video what types of paint would you recommend or maybe the other way is better what types of paint would you not recommend. I had a car painted with single stage acrylic enamel paint. but you cannot color sand that so there was no way to actually finish it.
I do have to remind myself that almost any paint job you put on a GM product is better than the factory did. I even saw a C7 with slight orange-peel paint. For the money you would thing GM would do better.
