This is a forum for all of us to learn or to teach so when someone like "chevy" asks for help in doing an economical paint job -even a lacquer one - it is ok to suggest alternatives but if he wants lacquer and you indeed do have the experience that you claim to have and can help then help him do the best lacquer job he is capable of. The hot rod hobby allows us to express ourselves and learn new skills, insisting on doing things one way -your way- is not helpful. Newbe amateurs cannot afford the protective devices necessary to spray isocyanates nor should they expose themselves to those paints. Even California allows the use of the new lacquer paints that apparently meet their standards, this allows new painters to paint their cars with a user friendly system and when they get better and want to move on to the new paints, good deal! Anybody remember their first paint job?Millions of cars were painted with lacquer for many years and those paint jobs lasted for years, if your lacquer jobs only lasted 2 years you did a number of things wrong! Lighten up.
