Can I repaint

Just picked up 65 chevelle convertible for good price. The guy I got from painted the car in 2010 nissan red brick last Sept, love the color. Did a great job on body work looks real straight clearcoat laid down great but did not get coverage with the base coat, Looks great in garage but when the car is in the sun it really shows up.He said he completely stripped the car then primed with clausan rust defender then used a black sealer.Should he have used a white sealer with red basecoat? My question is can I just block the car seal it then repaint it. Or do I have to strip the whole car again. Its not going to be a show car ,but want it to look nice I am going to drive it. Thanks for any help. Rich

If he completely stripped it, then Yes, you can paint right over it.

Wash it with Dawn dish liguid til it doesn't bead up and then scrub it with Comet. I'd follow that up with 600 grit wet and then paint.

Painting over no more than 1 paint job is the general rule,
but there are plenty out there with 3 or more that held up fine.
It all depends on mil thickness and type of paint.
How thick and how flexible.
Thickness can vary a lot, depending on the painter and
materials used.
So over only 1 is usually safe.
After that, I'd strip it to guarantee it.

repaint

I don't spray cars professional or anything but COMET? Isn't that for you know... household cleaning? I'm just thinking of that fine dust that's really hard to get off afterwards. I would prep the car with some prep sol or another good wax remover. Scuff the car shoot the same base color and recoat with clear.

Agreed doesn't hurt to mock your color a bit.

You can add base to white sealer to tint it. If you're painting bright color go with white sealer, darker colors gray sealer and black use black sealer.

The Dawn and Comet do a good job of removing road contaminants on
a vehicle that's been driven between paint jobs.
The leftovers can then be used to clean the bathroom.....

Its the grit in the comet that makes it work better than scuffing alone.. you also use a red scuff pad when applying it...its an old,tried and true trick and it works better than scuffing alone...You sand the car first,of coarse ,then bring it outside and wash it with a scuff pad and comet just like you scuff a car..
