Heres a shot of the 82, it was sprayed with Valspar Tractor and implemment Low Gloss Black.
I used the same stuff on my 66 Impala about 5 years ago and it still looked the same last fall when I sold it.
The main thing to remember is USE THE HARDENER, it makes the paint more scratch resistant
It's lot easier to make flat paint look nice when it's wet. Do you have any pictures of the car dry? Also, not trying to start a fight, but I think you'd really have to be a corvette fanatic to get upset about anyone doing anything to a 78-82 vette... Unless it's "Corvette Summer" ugly. That poor '73.
