I am leaning heavily towards some kind of Hot Rod Black finish. (no gloss, no clear)
I may not be much help for ya in that department Charlie!
BTW - my gun has the purple handle as well. It's dandy for primer.

NEVER SPRAY WITHOUT AT LEAST A CHARCOAL RESPIRATOR!!!!!!!
The materials are better than the old days, but they're STILL TOXIC! They will attack your nervous and respiratory systems over time and cause all kinds of problems.
A disposable respirator is CHEAP compared to the medical bills you will pay later.
Sorry, rant over. Let me get of this soap box now.

The epoxy sprayed out very easily and nicely and it is a bit of toxic death. lol. You need a good filtered breather mask thing. Or, do it outside like I did for my Camaro early one summer morning. I did use an HVLP gun, but after some checking with guys who paint, I just bought a lil ol' $65 Harbor Freight gun. Works great for basic primers.
I took a chance this time around and bought the 2k Epoxy primer from this guy: http://stores.ebay.com/TCPGlobal-AutoBodyDepot A friend had researched it and bought the paint so I figured, WTH. I see his stuff at some of the local car events and swap meets and picked it up there. It was $77/gal. (waaaay cheaper than the PPG DP90 I used on the camaro.)
So far so good, but, really, ask me again in 2-5 years and then we'll know for sure.

Today my buddy spent lots of time putting down some Duraglass on the areas that we thought were too big of a ding/divot for a skim of the regular filler.
Personally, I only had about 2.5hrs of work on it today.
We did some basic sanding after the 'glas cured,.....re-touched up a couple of spots and called it a night.
We're gonna let that cure for a few days before going back and spraying a guide-coat/primer over all those area's and then seeing what's high and what's low.

|BrianJ||I was hell getting the grill off my 66.|
|01-24-2010 06:30 PM|
|earthquake68||'67 is the same. I have a sharpened putty knife that works great for sliding under the grill and cutting the rivets. Then you just pop in new rivets when you're done. ....easy.|

|jayoldschool||Really? Wow, I never knew. I've never had my grille off my 65 either...|
|01-24-2010 03:35 PM|
I wanted to take off that grill but the whole dange thing is originally riveted into place!
crazy I tell ya....
|01-24-2010 03:23 PM|
|jayoldschool||Looks great! You should take off that front trim/grille...|

Ha! I hadn't even noticed that the red 'overspray' had a torso shape and the darker spots. I'll have to ask my bud about that! He may have something he wants to tell me.
Alan - don't be fooled man, that's like the only good angle on the car. lol! we've done a lot of patching up. There's still a lot of body work to do too,
Dave - ya know, my buddy Mike was saying the same thing!

She's finally got a coat of epoxy primer that she needed so badly!! Yeaa!!!
It's hard to see here but the blanket was an easy cover-up and we did tape off all edges in there.

Looks nice in bare metal. How about just a clear coat?
