Ahhh painting with Lacquerm and an Eldo convertible, both those bring back memories. A green 76', yep memories.

All I know is I painted it year round in a "shop" that was no more than a big garage. No heat, other than a home made heat lamp (six flood lights basically) and I made a living and fed the family year after year.
Now this was in the SF bay area where it goes from 40's to the 90's throughout the year.

50-60 is reasonable; if this has an activator, I believe some will say they stop working around 50* YMMV

Question is WHY??? There are so many better options to using Lacquer for about the same money!!

The only reason I can see to use lacquer in this day and age is if its a real rare car and your trying to restore it to as close as possible to factory. Otherwise theres no reason to use it.
