Alright I have searched the forums and was thinking of going Fulthane on my Ttype.

Its white and I'm going to stay with white, I read on the dupont site that you can mix clear with the paint to add depth. Is this worth doing? Will it make it easier or harder to lay down? Would it be effective to add a fine pearl to the mix to make it pop a little more or am i asking for trouble.

I like the idea of a single stage feed back would be good.

I painted my 29 model A a few weeks back with fulthane and it came out pretty nice.. has a very good shine... here are a few pics of it.. this is not sanded or buffed either. went on very smooth as well... and I mixed as directed didn't add any clear.

Theres no need for clear,you cant tell the differance between SS and BC?CC anyways dont add anything to SS it'll lay down in the wet paint.add pearls and mica's to BC/CC Or tri-coats or intermix clears (clear base coat) Never SS ,even metalics look like poo....Solid colors only

acutally it is an off white but unless something very white is next to it you can't tell. That is my first ever paint job aswell.. A great guy named Mike walked me throught the process.. Yours will come out just as nice... "It's all in the prep work" right Massa?

I just painted a hood black with the Nason SS. I didn't add the clear--if I wanted all that trouble, I'd just go BC/CC.

I liked the stuff--easy to shoot, laid out pretty flat, and sanded and buffed up well.

Good luck!
