32 year old paint job

Recommended Posts

I can't believe it's been 32 years since I brought home my 71 from being painted. Still looks OK from 20 ft but I have polished off the paint in several areas.

Joe, yes I did. I think it was code 99U or 99 something, Lacquer no clear coat and since I worked there then, it was free!

Wow! Definitely got your free paints worth!! Lol I always liked lacquer paint for it's ability to be buffed back to a shine.

Bruce,

Free is good!

I worked for DuPont for 16 years, but in the Chemical division (left because the plant closed). I painted my 69 Z in lacquer the first time in '90, but some new primer they had bubbled up on me. They ended up giving me all new materials, but insisted on base/clear. Stripped & repainted the entire car again. So in a sense, I got free paint, but at the expense of all my labor to refinish it again. It was a shame, the lacquer was just stunning. Luckily, the base/clear has held up well since '91, so I guess it wasn't all bad. ChromaBase 99K & 7500 clear at the time. You guys didn't make the Super Jet Black G9900 when that happened unfortunately.
