What is a easy paint to use for beginners?
Permalink  
 


Hello gents! 

I've decided to fix my quarter panels and a few other rust issues with my car this winter. Accordingly, I'll be painting the entire car 1967 bolero red. Can anyone recommend a paint system that's user friendly for a beginner? This will be my first paint job. I've been considering an acrylic enamel paint, that is what is still on my 72 C20, and I really like the look and finish. Although I'm not opposed to a modern urethane paint. Opinions?

Michael I will call you tomorrow and we can discuss options for the pros and cons of enamel vs single stage urethane and base coat/clear coat systems. There’s just to much to explain writing it out. Let alone what budgets allow.😁

 Hi Larry!

Thank you, I really appreciate that.

As a rookie painter I used PPG Concept, a single stage urethane paint, to redo some of the pieces on my Studebaker. It really flows out nice and once it flashes it lays out very shiny and smooth. Very little wet sanding was required. It is also incredibly durable. According to the original builder of my car, that is what he used. The paint is now 20+ years old and I still get compliments on how good it looks.

 Wow pat, the finish on your Studebaker looks amazing. I'm going to have to add PPG concept to the list of paints that I'm researching. That has the look of a high quality bc/cc paint system.
