new paint old look

Hey Guys I would like to know. What technique do custom shops use or wear can i learn about. Painting a car to look like it is 50 years old and has lots of patina. I will explain I have a customer and friend that wants to paint his duece five window highboy to look like a old hot rod or car from the fiftys thats been in the barn for 30+ years. I know lots of people shoot them in black and red primer etc, but if you look at the really nice old school built rods you will find they are straight and have paint that offers uv protection to stay away from that chalked out effect. I'm talking about the cars that look like the paint has been worn to the primer wear you rest your arm on the door and the hood edges and other places are showing crackling and wear through. the paint isn't flat flat like primer but has that old dull look like if you tried to buff it, it would be gone. Shops like rolling bones rod shop and others use techniques to give these new cars with new paint jobs that old worn look. I need to learn how that is done. Forever all the stuff i have painted has been buried in clear and polished to the hilt now theirs a shift of people wanting their models A' s,32 ,33,34 and so on to be new but look barn fresh old. Any help would be appreciated. I do not know if you can still buy lacquer paint or if the primer is the only thing still on the market.

i had a disaster expereince painting once, it WAS meant to be "gloss" black but i thinned it too much and sprayed on a real hot day (39deg-cel, in a shed) , the result was semi gloss, old looking, "crows feet" paint job that rubbed off real thin in places with a rag, was great for RatRodding, but.. it was meant to be a Good Gloss Job.

sounds like what you are after? dull, crows feet here and there, all you'd have to do then would be strategicaly rub back to primer in the spots you would lean on.

so, use too much thinners, and spray in hot conditions is all i can suggest.

Use a single stage urethane and then wet sand it with a 2000-2500 grit and use a lite cutting compound to flatten it out..ez to say but takes a bit of practice to get it right..kinda like if you do a collision job and have to kill the gloss on the repaired piece to match the rest of the car..you can burn thru with the buffer in the wear spots if you like to get those to suit..Crackles are caused by shrinkage in the paint over time and I have yet to figure out quite how to do that on purpose..

To get that effect goes against all that you know about getting the shiny deep effects that have been popular..If you can shoot an old hood or something so you can get some practice before trying the guys car..
