    Base Coat / Clear Coat

    hello bill this is Dave in California,I hope the bb1worked out for you.ok before I begin I know I’m going to catch hell from some.billi take it it’s the Chrysler that is going to get painted,if you are painting it black fenders and body a different color I would look for ppl delstar acrylic enamel or DuPont Centauri acrylic enamel for the fenders and black trim.i would spray 3 coats and then about 2 days later lightly colors and with 320 wet and dry,let it set for about 2 to 3 weeks then resend with 400 wet and dry paper and then apply 3 more coats of black.i don’t know what the color the body is going to be but what ever paint you use watch the I’ve ratings somesingle stage such as red fades quickly even with a clear coat,I’m sure you can find the acrylic enamel if you can find the wagon peddlers as they carry illegal products,the acrylic enamel will outlast the basecoat clear coat, Dave
  2. Hello everyone does anyone know of a 1935 Buick 60 series cabriolet convertible that came out of West Virginia in the fifties it was originally a black car painted a sky blue,my father bought this car in 1943 from a used car lot,he had the car until 1947 ,my dad said there was a guy from New York that would always try to buy the car,my father said he would come to town and buy certaincars.after awhile my father and him became friends.my father would deliver coal to businesses farms and homes,my father would keep and eye out for certain cars and let him know when he came to town where they where.the Buick was sold in48 I believe,by then my father had gotten married and started a family and lost touch with the guy from New York.somewhere about 1953 we where back visiting relatives I west Virginia and my father found the Buick for sale at a little car lot in front of I believe hillside auto wrecking.my father finally persuaded my mom into letting him by the Buick back but by then it had been sold and they had no info who bought it or where it went.in68 I was visiting West Virginia and my uncle took me to the wrecking yard I believe it was in Morgantown I asked about the car but they just treated me like some stupid kid.any one remember a car in the area or a story about the car,I know it’s a long shot but I grew up hearing about the Buick constantly.

    1935 Lincoln K Club Sedan

    Hello Matt several years back I bought a 34 Lincoln with the motor out I knew it was possible but since I didn’t pull it out I didn’t want to chime in and sound like a smart ass I knew you weren’t in the mood,I got a price then probably 10 years ago of 12.000 dollars to go threw the motor,that was more than twice what I payed for the car so I sent it down the road,I’ll stick with the devauxs for now there a lot cheaper, good luck.
