I used Summit Racing single stage acrylic urethane on my T-bucket . Excellent coverage and flow . Two coats was plenty , but I put down three because I color sanded and buffed for a custom look . Some people think it is clear coated . Black Cherry Pearl .

Nice T-bucket!
I was just reading on summits web site and it says that it sands after a few days of drying.

I would find out who makes that paint, it might surprise you. The link I have posted has a virtual car show with cars painted with thier product. They know who they sold the paint to so it's not someone claiming to use a certin brand of paint.

This color chart might look a little different on the internet than in real life depending on the light.

Yeah . It is and attention getter . I had to put the fenders on as a requirement of the WVSPD . I only put two coats on them and did NOT sand or buff them . I cruise a lot ane people are always snapping pictures with their cell phones whan I stop for gas . Almost makes me feel like a celebrity , but it's the car that is the celebrity . LOL Happy rodding .

Wow , You deserve to be proud of those results ! ! BTW . Did you use any reducer and if so , what ratio ? I didn't reduce mine at all. First time I sprayed anything without reducer .

Thanks! It could use buffing and sanding, but all in all for my first time painting it came out pretty decent.

Thank you! I'm pretty happy with the results I'm getting with some inexpensive paint and a paint gun in my garage at that.

I used some of Summit's "Zero VOC" reducer. Just a touch though. Something like 4:1:0.5.

I'm still not finished. There's a little urethane wave if you look closely. I plan to sand and paint flow a wet float coat. I'll post back with results, although it's coming out pretty nice as is.

If I read this right you added 0.5 parts reducer to 4 parts paint and 1 part activator ? I am going to do some modifications to my T-bucket this winter and am planning to do an entire repaint with the same color because of fisheyes in the paint job on it now . Although no one but me knows they are there it still bothers me .
