OK , so now I'm getting the body smooth, all modifications smoothed out, except for the rear filler panel and tail lites. I want to paint it next( now it's gray epoxy ) with the flat black primer ........thinking it will be easier to match up, later when I do some more modifying , like sunken antennas, and stuff. Question : IF I use a regular acrylic enamel black, add flattner to it, this will hold up better,how hard will it be to spot paint it later ? compared to just leaving it in primer ?

SEM Products, Inc. makes it. Check out this link. They even have a "where to buy" finder.

Have you read the Wiki article on John Deere Blitz Black?

Blitz Black about $25 per gallon!!!! Primer about the same. Reducer about $15 a quart. They say t can be spot blended but I have no direct experience with that. At that price you could redo a whole panel or even the whole car.

I like the Blitz Black, I think it would make a good finish color, and at that price ! BUT, I've been thinking again, and , that I should use some type off primer next ( flat blk ) , cause what's on it now is an epoxy primer, even thou it's 'scuffed' , I think it will bond better now with a reg primer, then when I'm 'done' , do the Blitz...............

I decided

I decided to use to the Blitz Black, cost is $ 27 a gallon , reducer $ 15. will pick up the paint tommorrow. Then , I think I'll go back to the front, put the engine in , and work up there for a while............mean while, I'll be thinking or planning how to finish the rear... I'll use '50 Pontiac tail lites (frenched) ...Question :what is reqired for back up lites ?.......price of quart of reducer is only about $5

I don't think you are required to have back up lights. If your car didn't have them when new why would you be required to have them now?

Do you want back up lights?

there you go again, bringing logic in ! I think it would look alot cleaner without them, plus, there would have to be two of them, probabley in the rear filler strip, (yet to be made). Filler strip would also have the cut outs for the bumper brackets and exhaust pipes.....(also yet to be made ).........then there's the license plate thing ........trunk latch of some kind, maybe a third brake light...........on second thought... on second thought....forget the backup lite.............thanks again 'Brew'

ghost

Next question : still a couple days away from painting, (satin blk) Is it possible to paint some 'ghost' flames, without buying some pearl ? If I understand the process correctly, it would only take a pinch, it wouldn't be worth buying a can (?)
