Industrial Imron from Dupont a quart kit was $70. Its not the best paint i know but i took my time on the prep work (which is everything with paint) and it came out flawless. 2 coats and its perfect sharp lines beautiful coverage. It stuck really well. Only time will tell how it will hold up.

I found out after I sprayed it that my friends grandpa uses it to paint his farm equipment and it holds up fairly well for the abuse its put through. Only he sprays 4 or 5 coats.

The hood stripes are not a silver. I could not get the right lighting for a good pic to show the true color. The color is cloud gray.

Yeah, I like the silver.

I have some Kirker Ultra Glo silver I've been experimenting with, it's really nice. I found that if you spray it a little dry it comes out satin, really cool.

Edit: x2 on the blocking (I just spent a week of 10 hour days blocking my Lincoln), but it looks really nice. Good job. Without the silver stripes, it would be just another rat rod, but the stripes rock.

and i want a satin finish. if i you know where i can find it please tell me. either a dark gray or white.

Get another paint store...You mean to tell me that they cannot get you the Satin paint for the old Boss Mustang and Mach1 stripe ??

They made Mustangs with both Black and Grey satin stripes
other muscle cars as well

Get another paint store

elcaminodragster im far from being good enough to do that lol. i primed and will be painting with zero teaching or practice. i learned from trial and error. the primer turned out extremely well tho. but thats just primer.

im just going to go with a dark gray of some sort. ill be spraying the black tomorrow after work. saturday i wont be home so ill have to paint the stripes sunday.

i just hope i can paint soon because i entered the car into the american graffiti cruise and show on june 12 13 and 14.


what tape do you recommend for taping off for the stripes? yellow? blue? green? im thinking green for sharp lines but it sticks strong and i dont want to harm the paint. then i think the blue because it comes off easy but its been know to bleed paint.

Chevrolet4x4s yeah for the stripes,maybe even have them go into a checkered flag from mid hood back, want a sketch?

elcaminodragster that color for the stripes??? because i already bought the hot rod black.
06-03-2009 06:30 PM
Chevrolet4x4s Are you dead set on white stripes? Gunmetal grey or a medium charchoal would look awesome.
